An upstairs lounge, inviting communal high-tables, and a lively chef’s counter combine to create a convivial atmosphere at Maven, a popular neighborhood cocktail lounge in the Lower Haight district of San Francisco. Owners Jay Bordeleau and Chef David Kurtz partnered with Mixologist Kate Bolton to bring a full menu of gastropub classics and cocktails to life. Although Bolton’s seductive drinks are easily enjoyed on their own, the suggested pairings are particularly enjoyable. The Devil's Halo, a combination of Scotch, Vermouth, Cherry, and Bitter Orange, is perfectly coupled with Kurtz’s Seared Bistro Steak and Spice Leek Soubise.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Global Warming: Aged Gin, Sake, Riesling, Lemon, and Absinthe Sorbet
  • Devil's Halo: Scotch, Vermouth, Cherry, Bitter Orange, and Absinthe
  • Monterey Calamari, Thai Chili, Coriander, and Ginger
