This week's tablehopper: hizzy-kaya.

Hello, my fellow spoiled citizens of the Bay Area. Yeah, that’s a 72-degree forecast we’re looking at for this weekend in SF. Hell to the yes. Time to start plotting where you want to have brunch outside (because that’s how we do it here in February).

This Saturday is Valentine’s Day (my inbox won’t seem to let me forget that for 10 minutes, as I get pummeled with so many chocolate, cocktail, and “very special prix-fixe dinner with oysters and steak and molten chocolate cake!” pitches). We recently did a little V-Day dinner and dessert roundup for y’all, but I also just posted this piece with fun Valentine’s Day options for my fellow single folks too. Yup, I’m looking out for all of you.

Today’s missive is a quick read, with my review of the charming Izakaya Rintaro, and we have a 707 Scout update for you too.

Hearts and flowers for all of you!
Marcia Gagliardi
