MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The simplest things are often the best, as a meal at Starbelly deliciously proves. Whether you’re twirling a forkful of spaghetti with garlicky tomato sauce, jalapeños and house-made bacon, or tucking into a juicy burger on a grilled sesame seed-challah bun, you’re sure to savor something beautifully made, seasonal and unfussy. Desserts are just as satisfying, like a salted caramel pot de crème served with rosemary shortbread cookies. A nexus of the Castro social scene, this cheerful, wood-paneled space is always full of locals hopping from table to table to greet their friends, and the back patio (heated and sheltered when it’s foggy) is an appealing refuge. Be sure to make reservations: this is an area favorite, and for good reason.
