Shane may be a Pennsylvania native, but the SF newcomer is already sharing his San Francisco faves.  Here are Shane’s Haute Secrets:

Where were you born:  Cherry Hill NJ (suburb just outside of Philadelphia)

How long have you lived in San Francisco:  Moved here with my wife on December 1, 2013.

What is your favorite restaurant: So far – that is a very tough question.  We haven’t had a bad meal yet but one that stood out to me was Serpentine in the Dogpatch.  Loved the space and the food was incredible.  Coco500 in SoMa was a very close second and perhaps a tie for first!

Best spa: – “Don’t tell my guy friends this because a lot of guys are a little gun shy when it comes to facials but I was introduced to Cheryl at Studio C Skincare. She is now like family.

All-around favorite locale in San Francisco:  AT&T Park.  Love the atmosphere there especially on game days when we visited last spring.

Best aspect of San Francisco:  It is hard to answer this without first saying the weather since we recently moved here from NYC and missed one of the worst winters New York has seen in such a long time.  I would have to say the people.  Quite honestly, everyone we have met has welcomed us with open arms and there is a friendliness and general open-mindedness that I wasn’t truly prepared for.  When you relocate across the country and leave your family to pursue your dreams, it can be quite daunting.  Everyone we have met here has made that transition a lot easier on my wife and I and we have made so many great new friends in such a short period of time.  We couldn’t be happier and we can’t wait to start a family and raise our children here.  Honestly, what’s NOT to love about San Francisco.  That is the real question.
