Healthy and Hungry in San Francisco

While the rest of the country heads back to school, late-summer harvests make September prime playtime for chefs in the City by the Bay.

Fancy food comes down to earth at Commonwealth, a former taqueria turned farm-to-table bistro that looks like the city and tastes like the country. A disco ball dangles from the rafters, but the real dazzle here comes from small plates packed with unexpected flavor. Chef/owner Jason Fox proves eggs aren't just for breakfast anymore, featuring dishes such as a Sonoma Soul Food Farm egg atop savory quinoa and naturally sweet roasted Toy Box carrots with a tantalizing whiff of black garlic. Upgrade to the $65 chef's tasting menu, and $10 goes to a local charity, such as the San Francisco Food Bank.
