4. The Educated Palate( Genaro Molina / Los Angeles Times )
Eager young servers scurried to and fro within the light and airy dining room of the Educated Palate — lots of eager young servers; in fact, one for each table. You certainly can't fault the service here. The food ranks high on our list too.
The Educated Palate, a corner dining room a few blocks from Union Square, is part of City College of San Francisco. It functions as a culinary training ground for the chefs and servers of tomorrow. And we, the tourists of today, reap the benefits. The menu is eclectic, contemporary and packed with upscale entrees that we might have to pay big bucks for if we weren't smart enough to eat here.
