      Cafe Zeotrope

      Just up Jackson Street in North Beach you can enjoy well-made classic italian dishes & appetizers at Francis Coppola’s Cafe Zoetrope. It’s stocked with some interesting film memorabilia & is a great people watching spot in the heart of North Beach (in an awesome building).

      House of Nanking

      Just up from Zoetrope is the infamous and delicious House of Nanking. You waiter might tell you what it is you are having, but if you aren’t allergic to MSG, all non-traditional service is forgotten in the face of it’s unapologetic deliciousness. And you can ask for a beer if you have to wait in line outside.
