It’s no secret that San Francisco and the Bay Area contain a wealth of world-class food options. From Michelin-starred restaurants and innovative food trucks to unique neighborhood spots and a wealth of delivery services, NEMA residents have an embarrassment of riches to choose from just steps from—or deliverable to!—their front doors.
“What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore it knows it’s not fooling a soul.” –Neil Gaiman, American Gods
Those friendly faces you see when you first get home every day are more than the smile. NEMA’s concierges take real delight in finding out what’s going on in San Francisco and sharing only the best with residents. From the hottest restaurant openings to the best in performance, fine arts, and outdoor fun, the concierges at the north and south towers are a great resource for planning a day or a night out.
NEMA residents have been waiting patiently for the opportunity to walk to shop for high-quality groceries in a community atmosphere. At long last, The Market inside Market Square is ready to go! We got a sneak peek (today/Friday) and this is what we saw…
As December’s rains look to have let up and the holidays are in the rear-view mirror, we’re thinking about day trips. Wine-lovers give Napa and Sonoma most of the attention, but we’re interested in one of California’s oldest wine regions, one that has been getting lots of new attention.
Much-needed rain has been slaking California’s drought this month (though there’s still a long way to go). With no let-up in sight this week, NEMA residents are thinking about options for things to do nearby once stomping around in puddles loses its novelty.
With Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and all the rest out of the way, we’re ready to settle down to connecting and reconnecting with friends and family while enjoying San Francisco during the holidays. Along with all that’s going on in the neighborhood, from Dave Koz’s Christmas show at the Warfield to A Charlie Brown Christmas at the Symphony, NEMA has several events planned to help make your season bright.

With all that the Mid-Market area has to offer, especially with the neighborhood’s recent phenomenal metamorphosis, one thing that’s been lacking is a wide choice of delicious bites and sips all in one stop. That’s all changing as some of the city’s most exciting purveyors of high-quality comestibles are claiming space in truly innovative food-and-drink concepts mere steps from NEMA.
What do you call a neighborhood that straddles the Mission, Noe Valley, and Bernal Heights? For its abundance of night spots, eateries, unique shops for locals and visitors, San Francisco Chronicle columnist Carl Nolte called it “San Francisco in miniature.” People in the know have learned to meet their friends in “La Lengua”—the vaguely tongue-shaped triangle below Cesar Chavez Street.
With the gloom near the coast clearing more frequently and the intense inland heat starting to let up, late September and early October’s weather in Northern California often hits that sweet spot that makes us think of day trips or spending lots of time outside right here in San Francisco. Harvest time also means the region’s farmers, wine- and beermakers, culinary artists, and more have the year’s best bonanza to work with. The happy result is a collection of festivals that celebrate the best this part of the world has to offer.
