Tinder. Match. BART.
Who cares how you met her. Now you've gotta plan the first date. And you've already exhausted our list.
The team behind Aquarello has the perfect new venue: 1760, a gem of a date spot now open on Polk Street.
The vibe is laid back with café-style tables and a creative cocktail menu. Our pick for the first drink to take the edge off: The 1760 cumin-spiced gin-mezcal concoction which is near-impossible to stop sipping.
From there, the shareable plates are all priced less than $20. So, yeah, you'll have the delicate and artfully presented sliced hamachi with pluots, and the Thai-influenced SRF beef tartare, and of course, the fried duck sandwich, which — topped with pickles and spicy aoli — is essentially a fancypants In-N-Out burger.
In fact, you'll have two of those, one for each of you.
Because there is such a thing as oversharing. Especially on a first date.
Price: 2 (out of 4)
Best bets: Sliced hamachi; fried duck sandwich; SRF beef tartare; The 1760
