Grab your wallet and tell that appetite of yours to hang tight because we've got you covered with a list of key restaurants you need to check out in San Francisco. Whether you're a local or just in town for a quick layover, our friends over at Wildsam helped us produce a map of quality places all worth checking out and local photographer Oscar Nilsson took photos of everything. Hungry? Look no further...

You can also pick up a map at our SF store (722 Montgomery St. San Francisco, California)

1. Tosca Café

The 98-year-old North Beach institution’s new owners (of NYC’s Spotted Pig renown) respect the original charms (red booths, interior murals, bullet holes) and revitalize the classic with a new menu of modern Italian comforts. 242 Columbus Ave. 

2. Wayfare Tavern

Farmhouse texture meets townhouse polish in this three-floor corner spot in the Financial District. Chef Tyler Florence’s full-bellied American fare satisfies, with a menu that spotlights the best of California growers. And the Petaluma egg-crowned burger is to die for. 558 Sacramento St.

3. Little Vine

The husband-and-wife duo behind Union Larder opened this neighborhood wine, cheese and provisions shop of dreams in 2011. Go for the daily sandwich special on Acme bread or gather picnic nibbles for nearby Washington Square Park. 1541 Grant Ave.

4. Good Mong Kok Bakery

This bustling Chinatown dim sum takeout is 100% worth its nearly constant line. Hard to go wrong, but year-round favorites include the char siu bao (BBQ pork buns) and har gow (steamed shrimp dumplings). 1039 Stockton St
