55 Music Concourse Dr. , San Francisco, CA 94118

This wildly popular dining venue at the new California Academy of Sciences, in Golden Gate Park (sister restaurant to the neighboring Academy Café), is a shrine to sustainable agriculture, courtesy of local food heroes and good-pal chefs Charles Phan (Slanted Door) and Loretta Keller (Coco500). The handsome subterranean space—yes, that’s live moss on the wall—has delicious ricotta cavatelli and succulent lamb kefta on its crowd-pleasing Cal-Med menu. Try not to fret the $25 museum admission to lunch here: surely you want to see the eco-sleek sci-fi setting that starchitect Renzo Piano has created for the designer butterflies and lizards. Lunch for two $65.
