NOPA: Dinner

Credited for renaming the neighborhood North Of the PAnhandle, NOPA embodies that which is urban rustic, California cuisine. Serving fine food until 1am, this two-story establishment situated on the burgeoning Divisadero corridor is always packed. Upholding its reputation since its opening in 2006, NOPA is consistently reinventing comfort foods in their grandiose open kitchen. In the Chez Pannise style, NOPA showcases all of the local purveyors it works with on its menu and website. Focusing on simple ingredients and specializing in wood-fired cuisine, everything on the menu is worth tasting and revering. 

We ordered a wide assortment of items on the menu in our over two hour dinner.
