What To Wear To Ferry Terminal Marketplace


St. Regis San Francisco

“This hotel is my home away from home. I love the modern aesthetic, but it’s the staff that elevates the experience. From the perfectly appointed rooms to the smallest details, it’s always a pleasure to spend time here. The Golden Gate Mary, a special version of the hotel’s signature Bloody Mary, is especially delicious, and the Lobby Bar always feels like you’re arriving at a party.” -Thomas Keller

“This charming bistro, named for the fox character in The Little Prince, is the latest restaurant opened by Corey Lee, a former chef de cuisine at The French Laundry. There’s a kind of pride that comes with seeing someone like Corey branch out and build something special. Also, the Camembert beignets are magnifique.” -Thomas Keller
