SAN FRANCISCO—Everyone likes a good deal on a delicious meal. Here are 12 of our favorite places in SF to fill up for under $10.

MISSION—New restaurant Urchin has landed in the Mission. It comes from the team behind Michelin-starred Ame and Terra, but it's much more casual (and affordable). Check out the space and the menu.

SAN FRANCISCO—You may have heard that Jay-Z and Beyonce rolled through town this week (in many cases, just by being inside your house on a Tuesday night). Here are all the restaurants they hit up in SF.

TENDERLOIN—The folks behind rum paradise Smuggler's Cove are going for a second comprehensive bar with the forthcoming Whitechapel, which aims to have North America's largest collection of gin.

BAY AREA—The Eater Heatmap is freshly updated. The next time you're itching to try a new restaurant, just consult this list to get the skinny.

CASTRO—Arcade-game geeks will be thrilled to learn that Brewcade, a bar specializing in craft beer and old-school machines, is on its way to the Castro. We've got all the details.

MISSION—La Taqueria, El Farolito, Taqueria Cancun: which of these three burrito giants is the best? FiveThirtyEight's national burrito expert tried them all, and she has a pretty definitive ranking.
