sf adventures: food and drinks at evil eye

Evil Eye - San Francisco (1)

Hi everyone! I recently visited a super new cocktail bar and restaurant in the Mission (Mission Street x 25th Street), Evil Eye, and wanted to share some photos! The bar JUST opened last week and was started by a couple, Matt and Piper, who are so sweet (and those cocktails Matt whips up are A+!). Like, I wanted to be friends with them IRL. The space itself is beautiful and really well curated, with Persian rugs and 70s-inspired furniture all over. There are several nooks and booths for groups to sit in and plenty of room to sit at the big, original bar space if you’re grabbing a drink solo or with one friend. Most of the decor was found at different flea markets around the Bay Area and I want all of it in my apartment!

Other than the incredible decor, the food and drinks were so amazing! Here’s what we ate: Pimento Fries with garlic aioli and harissa ketchup, beet-pickled deviled eyes, pork belly toast with kimchi and rock shrimp, fried green tomatoes with burrata and chickpea sliders. We each had two cocktails; most of them pictured below and explained in the caption. All of them were so delicious and it’s hard to even pick a favorite!

In the Mission, it feels like all of the places to grab drinks are either 1.) dive-y bars with no food (or very limited, greasy options) or 2.) fancier sit-down restaurants that are delicious, but don’t have the same fun, bar vibe. Evil Eye is the perfect mix of both – the drinks are spot-on (and strong!), the food is delicious, the energy from the staff and crowd is fun and it’s a gorgeous space.

Run, don’t walk (or take BART) to get to Evil Eye! I can’t wait to go back soon. Check out all of the pics below!
