San Francisco, California

Boulibar, baby sister to Boulettes Larder, offers one thing that can be hard to find in the maelstrom of shoppers that swamps the Ferry Building every Saturday morning: a relatively serene place to eat. Given the mostly communal tables, the restaurant isn’t exactly hushed, but at least you’re sheltered from the crush of people in the main hall. The fare is mostly pizzas and salads, with a Mediterranean accent; rose syrup, feta, and the spice blend called zaatar appear throughout the menu, and flavors in the Eastern Mediterranean salad (barberry, sunflower seeds, pomegranate) also conjure that region. Which leaves the question of how the “Eastern European hot chocolate” fits in. Don’t ask—just order it.
