Forkin' Frisco: A guide for Financial District food finders

Forkin’ Financial District

Unless your daily outfit consists of a suit and tie and you work a job that has you dodging accusations of being part of the 1%, chances are you don’t make it to the Financial District much. But why not? You don’t have to be a banker to enjoy a good meal in this neighborhood.

SWEET TOOTH

Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery
22 Battery St.

You know who doesn’t love a good cookie? No one. Specialty’s has every kind under the sun, from semi-sweet chocolate chip to snickerdoodle. They also have a number of sandwiches and salads for a quick, delicious lunch.

CHEAP EATS

Eataliano
388 Market St

Repeat after me: Italian food is more than spaghetti and meatballs. Whether you’re in the mood for an authentic Italian sandwich with prosciutto or a more traditional bowl of minestrone, Eataliano delivers.

ROMANTIC

Barbacco
220 California St.

The more casual sister restaurant of upscale Italian restaurant Perbacco, Barbacco’s inviting interior and rich dishes like pork ragu make it a great date destination. The moderately priced wine list doesn’t hurt either.

WILDCARD

Kokkari Estiatorio
200 Jackson St.

If your vocabulary of Greek food begins and ends with the word “gyro,” your horizons will be broadened with one trip to Kokkari Estiatorio. Two words: zucchini cakes.
