The 15 BEST Burgers in SF!

Another burger that strays from the typical taste combination is the one at Chambers Eat + Drink. The super smokiness and abundance of caramelized onions, buttered lettuce, mustard aioli, and slice of tomato make this sammie an all-star in our burger-loving books. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can add some shaved avocado and pork belly, but we think it’s a standout swirl of flavors as is. It seems this meal heeded the advice of the cutesy sign in the restaurant — it’s “amazing”!

Inside Scoop’s Favorite Outdoor Bars

inside scoop

It is a beautiful spring day in San Francisco, and with maybe-record temperatures leaping into the whopping high 70s and low 80s (!), it might as well be summer in the Bay Area. It’s a local tradition that everyone overreacts to the first gorgeous weather streak of the new year, and that’s not a bad thing. And what better way to celebrate getting through a Monday indoors than with an adult beverage enjoyed al fresco?

SF Examiner interview with Chambers barman Richard Woodruff


In a town crowded with chic, sexy bars, Chambers stands out. Located in the Phoenix Hotel, the bar underwent a striking and modern remodeling. It once housed Backflip and Bambuddha Lounge. Unique and varied lighting in the two indoor bars, brocade and leather banquette seating, and indoor and outdoor fireplaces give it a distinctive, classy feel. A wall display with more than 10,000 classic LPs sometimes proves to be too tempting for customers, says bartender Richard Woodruff, noting that some go spinning right out the door. The poolside patio is a favorite, especially on sunny Sundays when patrons can dance to DJ music and enjoy barbecue. As the big lighted sign in the front lounge says, “BE AMAZING.” Chambers pretty much nails it.

“I really want to take the idea of California cuisine a little further.”

Six Romantic Tables for Date Night

Table 45 at Chambers eat + drink

The Table: Smack dab in the middle of this uber-cool restaurant/bar in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District is a plush two-top, couch-table so sensual, it actually has a fireplace right in front of it. Table 45 is a virtual sweetheart’s table inside a darkly lit dining room bedecked in vinyl records. Thousands of them to be exact. A perfect touch — given you’ll feel like you’re in a late-night commercial for a love song anthology — sans the bearskin rug.

Another Aphrodisiac: Can’t get the sweetheart table? Seats six and seven at the bar (lower picture), overlook a big sparkly sign donning the inspiring words — “Be Amazing.” A suitable plan B.
