Score at These Top Restaurants near Levi's Stadium

San Francisco's reputation as a world-class city for restaurants is well-deserved. With time-tested classics like linguini in North Beach or dimsum in Chinatown, sampling San Francisco's many cuisines is the best way to get to know this diverse, extraordinary city. You truly haven't visited San Francisco until you have eaten in San Francisco.

And San Francisco has been steadily expanding her impressive menu. Driven by the same westward spirit of risk and expansion of 19th century American pioneers, the San Francisco restaurant scene has reinvented itself. Some of the country's most daring and inventive chefs are nestled in San Francisco's seven hills.

So the answer seems obvious: if you've just finished watching a 49ers game at the brand new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, the only choice for dinner is to head back to San Francisco, right?

Delay your game for a minute, football fan. Because Santa Clara and the Peninsula, the area south of San Francisco, have their own tradition and inventiveness to offer you.

Want tradition? Then head to one of the several top-notch Italian restaurants in the area.

Interested in tasting the cutting edge, California cuisine that basically started the whole "farm to table" movement? Then head to Parcel 104, a quality restaurant that was heralding the importance of organic food well before many of the hip Mission start-ups.
