Restaurant Review: San Francisco, California

Heirloom Café


Owner Matt Strauss based the wine list at Heirloom Café on his own collection of properly aged gems, which range from back vintages of Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet to Hanzell pinot noirs from the 1970s and ’80s. The food is simple and unpretentious, served in a setting that looks like the dining room of a Victorian farmhouse, Dixieland jazz playing in the background. Strauss encourages guests to bring in older wine, offering $10 corkage on bottles at least ten years old.
