Calling San Francisco’s financial district home is just the first of many unconventional characteristics of Wayfare Tavern. I came in early (6pm) on a Wednesday evening – without a reservation –
thinking hoping that I would be spared a walk in place at the bar, a table, the floor… anywhere. Not recommended! This place is extremely popular right now and was packed to the brim as soon as I set foot inside.
The Gabardine is tucked away in the heart of the 9 to 5 Bay Street jungle, underneath a construction awning canopy and next to a 7-11. Once inside, time all at once slows down and you will be standing in a gastropub minus the pretension. Alison Mackenna, one of the founding staff (along with Katherine Rodrigues and Chef Rodney Bowers), welcomed me in and kept friendly company all evening.
