The Stinking Rose

325 Columbus Avenue, San Francisco CA 94113

$25 - $50

Vampires beware! The Stinking Rose is known throughout San Francisco as being the number one restaurant for fans of garlic and excellent food. Located in North Beach, the restaurant goes through over 3,000 pounds of the garlic each month, and diners visit again and again to indulge in the Californian-Italian cuisine. The Stinking Rose is best known for its Dungeness Killer Crab: a fresh crab weighing over two pounds and roasted in a secret garlic sauce until succulent and juicy. The garlicky goodness extends to the rest of the restaurant’s menu, which includes seafood skillets, tureens, surf and turf, pastas, pizzas, prime rib, and even appetizers like Garlic Filet Mignon Chili. To remain accommodating, the Stinking Rose offers all of their dishes as "Vampire Fare"; meaning that they can make any dish sans garlic for those not so fond of the pungent allium. This delicious food is served in a fun atmosphere, complete with themed rooms, interesting garlic collectibles, and even a mechanized, miniature garlic factory. Whether they're a big fan of garlic or not, diners will enjoy this fun, friendly, and tasty restaurant.
