You’ll find a new (and exciting) cocktail list at ~BELDEN TAVERNA~ from Victoria D’Amato-Moran, recently hired as the bar manager. Check out her cocktail list on Alcademics, which includes many of her housemade syrups, plus fruits and peppers. There’s the Margarita Arrosto, with tequila, housemade roasted pepper syrup, and lime, and a Tuaca Sour, with Tuaca, ginger liqueur, lemon, sugar, and egg white. True to the alley location, there’s also the Alley Cat Cobbler, with sherry, sugar, orange, mixed berries, and cinnamon tincture. Happy hour is daily 4pm-6pm, and there’s live music from the Americano Social Club Trio on Fridays from 5pm-7pm and Saturdays from 6pm-8pm. 52 Belden Pl. at Pine, 415-986-8887.
