Buy Me Some Peanuts and Porcini Doughnuts

From the moment it opened, AT&T Park had far better food than your standard ballfield, but now the place has really upped its game. Within the stadium walls, you can pick up, along with the familiar hot dogs and garlic fries, award-winning pizza at Tony’s Slice House (Sections 103 and 314), a burrito at Mission Street Taqueria (Section 130), fried Brussels sprouts with aioli at the Great House of Brews (the View Level), and—most impressive of all—porcini doughnuts at the Rich Table stand in Section 114. Yup, Rich Table as in the hard-to-get-a-reservation restaurant on Gough Street, which is, by the way, closed for renovations till August 4.

Across McCovey Cove from the ballpark’s south gate, temporarily occupying the corner of a Giants-owned parking lot, is a shipping-container complex called the Yard at Mission Rock. (Think Hayes Valley’s Proxy Project, only with a crowd primarily dressed in orange and black.) There’s been some turnover in the retail tenants in the 16 months since it opened, but here’s who’s in the lineup now: Anchor Brewing, Creperie Saint-German, and Belcampo Meat Co. (For the uninitiated, that translates into beer from one of San Francisco’s longest-operating breweries, and some of the best burgers in town.)

And if those are all too crowded—or you need a little something after the game—try ranging a little farther afield, to ATwater Tavern, at the base of Pier 50 (just around the corner from the Yard), Spark Social SF (a collection of food trucks a few blocks south on Fourth Street), or a standalone branch of Slice House on Second Street, just north of Townsend Street.
