Restaurants in Marina
Shelley Lindgren, co-owner of this southern-Italian favorite (named for the highway that runs through Naples), has built a wine list that practically demands exploration; the 350-bottle list is stocked with obscure varietals like Aglianico, Casavecchia, and Pallagrello.
The large, red-framed front windows of Pacific Catch in the Marina open up to wood floors, burnt-orange walls, and bright blue mosaic accents. Here the focus is on large portions of fresh, reasonably priced seafood cooked with Asian flavor and local ingredients.
The Nectar Wine Lounge in Marina serves up ambrosia for the soul—with 800 bottles to choose from. Back-lit honeycomb wine racks give way to red and white walls adorned with brightly colored modern art.
Naked Fish in Marina breaks with the typical Japanese restaurant both in decor and cuisine. Techno music and a plasma TV vie for each diner's attention as a blue glow lights up the seashell-themed sushi bar.
One of the country’s first and most renowned vegetarian restaurants, Greens opened in San Francisco in 1979.
