Parigo (Marina District) Opening Up Tiki Bar in back patio
San Francisco is known for its restaurant scene, it's bar scene, and anytime there's a new restaurant, a bar opening up that I can walk to from my house, I get really excited. I love tiki drinks and there's a place on Scott Street between Lombard and Chestnut called Parigo. It's been there for a while and on the weekends they are opening up their back patio space and they're making it a tiki bar back there. I love tiki drinks, I love back patio spaces, so it'll be open on Fridays and Saturdays 6pm - 12 pm starting this April 19th, which is what next week. Pretty cool, so check it out Parigo
Che Fico - Newest Italian Restaurant opens on Divisadero Street
Next thing I want to mention is I tried a really great new restaurant last night. I was intrigued after I saw the the Silver Fox, what's his name, CNN's Anderson Cooper post about a new restaurant here on Divisadero, 838 Divisadero Street called Che Fico. I think it's supposed to be Italian, and that's my Italian impression, and we ate there last night and it was fantastic. We had a late reservation at around 10pm, showed up, got a seat right away, had a delicious aperitif. To start out the meal I had a kumquat aperitif which would happen to be very very delicious. I try to eat a vegan diet and a lot of Italian food doesn't really go that way, so I can deviate, and get off my diet every now and then, as I did last night. We have the orecchiette which was really delicious and was actually my favorite dish of the night. The sausage in there was really good and really spicy. What else, we had the tagliatelle. And finally for dessert we had the cannoli. You cannoli live once. Get it? All right, bad jokes, but the cannolis were really good.
What are the high end buyers looking for in Pacific Heights? What are the latest design trends in 2018?
I never really cover stats and numbers it's boring, but this is kind of interesting. The first quarter of 2018 here in San Francisco the median home price for a single-family home is not including condos, jumped up to $1.6 million dollars. If you broke it down by average home price, it jumped up to 1.9 million dollars. It's getting expensive here. I mean San Francisco has been expensive historically for just about forever, but it's definitely getting up there. If you want to buy a condo here in the city, the median grew to $1,168,000 in the city of San Francisco. The most expensive condo sold this first quarter was for $5.7 million...
