We ate a lot of pizza in 2020. If we weren’t dough experts before, we are now. DamnFine specializes in wood-fired crispy-crust pies, and our SF friends can’t get enough. What distinguishes DamnFine from other pizza joints are the pitch-perfect, market-fresh toppings—and you can go light or heavy, depending on what you’re into. Potato Pesto (purple potatoes, pancetta, woody herbs, and pesto), Mushroom Dream (all the mushrooms—enoki, king oyster, etc.—mozzarella, garlic butter), and Livin La Vida Verde (spring veggies, microgreens, mozzarella) are easy favorites.

Though the stone-and-wood interior has the potential to feel cold, the vibe at this comfort food-centric spot is super welcoming…that is if you can actually get in—waits can get kind of unbearable. While everything Chef Yoni Levy turns out is good (a testament to his skill and the top-notch ingredients he sources from local farmers), he does particularly spectacular things with weekend brunch. We're fans of the Dutch pancakes—both sweet and savory versions are excellent—and the pesto-smothered eggs-in-jail.
