One of the challenges of living in San Francisco is the ever-changing weather. You never know when the fog will roll in—or out—and the climate can vary greatly depending on the neighborhood. While it may be sunny and warm in the Financial District, it could be cold and chilly in the Sunset. It also fluctuates, almost manically, per day. On Friday, it could be beautiful outside, but then on Saturday, the wind might pick up and create an arctic chill. This constant inconsistency means that when it is hot out, you must take advantage of the weather immediately. You can not wait until tomorrow to enjoy an alfresco meal, you must seize the moment and head to a restaurant with an outdoor patio today. To ensure that you know where to go when the temperatures rise above 70°F, we’ve rounded up our favorite spots for outdoor dining. Here is where you’ll find us when San Francisco heats up.
