4 Restaurants Near The Orpheum

September 7, 2017

So you got tickets to Aladdin and you want to grab dinner before since the 2+ hour show is a long time to go on an empty stomach. We got you and your belly covered. We’ve put together a list of restaurants that are steps from the Orpheum (and Trinity Place) and are bound to keep you from getting hangry mid Genie’s “Friend Like Me”.

Sam’s Diner

famous korean tacos


This homey diner is a Mid-Market classic and is just across the street from the Orpheum. Sam’s menu offers favorites such as Honey Fried Chicken, Fish & Chips and their famous Korean tacos.

Recommend: start off with Bulgogi Loaded Tots (tater tots with marinated beef and Kimchi, topped with spicy Korean sauce).

Dirty Water

With antelope and roasted elk on the menu, Dirty Water is a fancier option but well worth the price.  Located in the Twitter building and featuring an impressive drink menu with over a hundred hand-selected wines and fifty-two beers on a short-line tap, Dirty Water is a great choice for a large group or special date night.

Recommend: the Bison stew. You won’t regret it.

Fermentation Lab

deviled eggs from Ferm Lab


Fermentation Lab is one of the best beer bars in San Francisco and also offers food! From burgers to duck confit sliders, Ferm Lab is a great place to meet up with friends for a quick bite and brew. This bar also features 24 rotating taps, all local and craft!

Recommend: Pliny the Elder from Russian River paired with the sliders. A very rare and refreshing Double IPA.

We blogged about Waystone a few months back as one of four places to sip wine in Mid-Market and they make our list again. Waystone offers a casual, yet refined atmosphere with bar counters and outside seating. Great for a daytime glass of sparkling wine while watching the bustle of Market Street!

Need coffee? Stop by Chez Nous Cafe just across the street from the Orpheum.
