4 Absinthe

Absinthe is classic San Francisco, best known for amazing cuisine and an insane mixologists. But did you know that Absinthe boasts one serious wine list?

5 Frances

Most of us know that Frances as that tiny little award-winning-hard-to-get-into restaurant in the Castro. No doubt, the food is impressive, but so is the extensive list of wine. The menu has a brief description of the wine types, such as full bodied whites or light rustic reds, which makes choosing pretty easy. Not to mention that their house wine policy is also pretty unique; they charge $1 per ounce consumed. They'll place a carafe of wine on your table and you may drink to your heart's content.
