For San Francisco the course was set to become a nationwide known foodie city already way back when first European and Asian immigrants brought their exceptional cooking skills and tasty flavors from their home countries to the Wild West and started mixing them with ingredients they found on site. First notable restaurants popped up in 1849 and some of them are still welcoming hungry folks till today. With iconic dishes, secret recipes and unique atmosphere these old school spots have stood the test of time and taste. And while we are not short on trendy new eateries, these classics are definitely worth putting on your to-eat list. Hop over to 7×7 to see the full list of San Francisco old-school restaurants.

    What a rad list! Love the full set and your photos are beautiful. I’ve been to a couple of these places, but didn’t know the history for some of them and definitely want to add some of the others to the list of places I’ve been!

    This is such an interesting idea — I love this! I’ve been to Trieste and House of Shields and stepped into Tosca (couldn’t get a table) but otherwise haven’t checked out these spots yet. Definitely adding them to my list!
