Openings: Bar Bambino

Normally, the opening of another wine bar in San Francisco isn’t news. After all, it seems like a new one opens every month. Suffice to say, if we keep up this pace, wine bars in San Francisco may soon become as widespread as pubs in Dublin.

But for some reason, Bar Bambino has us a little more excited than usual. Maybe it’s because we like the name. Maybe it’s because we like that area of the North Mission. Maybe it’s because we have a soft spot for a bread-centric Italian menu.

Whatever the cause, Bar Bambino has piqued our interest. Part wine bar, part cafe, they offer small bar bites like olive oil tastings and bruschette, in addition to larger plates (meatballs, pork shoulder). According to some reports, the place has been abuzz lately. If you’ve been, send any info our way.
