How to Enjoy a Little Rome in SF

See also

I just got back from a wonderful trip to my adoptive hometown: Rome. Some of things I adore there include:

Fernet Branca, classic dive bars with long leases, such as San Calisto and Puntarelle, a seasonal chicory served for only a handful of months in Rome. The crunchy, fresh greens are dressed in an anchovy sauce.

Here are a handful of places where you can find these delicacies in SF:

Puntarelle are seasonally available at Bi-Rite and Pizzaiolo in Oakland.

Fernet is available on tap on Polk St.
