Founded upon the magnetism of dreamers and explorers, San Francisco has always bottled the idea of “going west,” whether that’s John Muir or Harvey Milk, Etta James or Alice Waters. It is a shining city of seven hills with as much a mystical vibe as an ambitious bent. With our friends at Wildsam, we’ve created a comprehensive guide to our favorite places in the Bay and made it accessible here on our website.  Here is a selection of some of the most notable places to eat in this wondrous city. The printed version of Wildsam’s official San Francisco Field Guide is available for purchase on their website and in the minibar at San Francisco Proper Hotel.

What is Proper?

Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused, energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is an inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From music and art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
