Mission Cool, South Beach Style, and a Taste of Sydney: A Foodie Day Planner
Let's do lunch:
Grab a table at Ground Zero of Mission gastrocool. SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody advises lunching on a pressed sandwich filled with Idiazabal and membrillo (lightly smoked Spanish sheep's cheese and quince paste) at Tartine Bakery and CafĂ© (600 Guerrero at 16th St., 487-2600).
It's mod and sleek like a South Beach club, but with $2 beers, $4 wells, and $6 happy-hour Grey Goose concoctions, it's cheap like a South City tavern: Fluid Ultra Lounge (662 Mission at New Montgomery, 615-6888), 5-10 p.m.
The Giants are off today, but the baseball season happy hour is on: $5 beers and Aussie-tinged bar bites and $6 glasses of wine South Food + Wine Bar (330 Townsend at Fourth St., 974-5599), 3-6:30 p.m.
