San Francisco, CA
In a city where everyone dresses in Banana Republic or Juicy Couture, it's refreshing to find a store with the hottest trends in New York and Europe. Dress has the newest lines, most chic bags and seasonal collections from Catharine Maladrano to Cynthia Steffe.
Service is great and prices are New York style, expensive!
Roti, only a few months old, has already won over the small community of West Portal. The flavors are complex, the produce and meats are fresh and the service is friendly. Prices are great. Reservations are recommended.
Mani Pedi is a calm, clean and serene environment for manicures, pedicures and waxing. Not only are the staff nice, but it is quiet and sunny almost always. You pay a little more, but it's worth it!
