Wayfare Tavern
  558 Sacramento St./Montgomery St., Financial District.  Celebrity chef Tyler Florence starts meals in his American brasserie with a perfect popover (eat it while it’s hot!) and offers many down-home dishes—a juicy grass-fed burger on a brioche with brie from Marin, organic buttermilk-brined fried chicken, and sometimes baked Alaska or peach pie.  The deviled eggs, baked macaroni and cheese with Vella dry jack, and fresh mozzarella burrata are also justly popular.  For dessert you can’t go wrong with the Tcho chocolate cream pie, devil’s food cake, or any anything with salty caramel.  The cozy ambiance of this 1907 building that once was a gold-measuring center includes natural red brick, dark wood paneling, and high ceilings, plus some very comfy booths.
          Upstairs on the 4th floor, The Sequoia bar features a “power booth” inside a former bank vault that houses a whiskey collection.  The glamorous bar features a leopard-print carpet and a view of the Transamerica Pyramid.
