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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
