Big 4 Restaurant

Pay a visit to the Big 4 Restaurant if you wish to get a taste of San Francisco’s history alongside your meal.

Nob Hill locals are no strangers to brunch, and Olea knows just what works. The organic produce plays a huge part in the quality of these dishes and the popularity of the restaurant, which provides a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a leisurely meal.

Bourbon and Branch

Although there are plenty of places to eat in Nob Hill, this local favourite better caters to the liquid diet, but it is well worth a mention. The renovated 1923 speakeasy has maintained its probation-era atmosphere, with classic cocktails served in creative styles and a ‘secret library’ for the true enthusiast.
