Welcome to San Francisco! I understand you’re here for Dreamforce 2021, how exciting – and exclusive! If you’ve never been to San Francisco, we are happy to have you in our beautiful city. If you have, well then, we welcome you back!
Unlike your New York, London, Paris or virtual counterparts, you get to experience the culinary magic of San Francisco while networking with some of the greatest in your industry. While you’re here, we hope you learn, grow, and bask in San Francisco’s delicious hospitality scene.
We wanted to help you out by providing you with our short list of where to eat during Dreamforce 2021.
WHERE TO EAT NEAR DREAMFORCE 2021 CAMPUS
After a full day at the conference, you might be ready for a drink. Novela’s cocktail list will have your mouth-watering with their crafty menu. If you’re a fan of literature, you’ll get a kick out of their cocktail names, like the Atticus Finch, Jay Gatsby, and Harriet Winslow, to name a few. If you’re going with a group, be sure to get punch on tap by the bowl.
Hummus and pitas and shakshuka, oh my! Oren’s Hummus is a small local chain of Israeli-style restaurants, offering an extensive menu of traditional, Middle Eastern cuisine. Whether you’re looking to dine in under their grandiose chandelier or take-out to relax back at your hotel room, you need to try Oren’s Hummus at least during your stay.
Throughout the conference, you are bound to meet some interesting people. You may be looking for a place nearby to go out for a snazzy dinner to amaze your new colleague. Well, Mourad is where you want to go. This Moroccan-themed restaurant is one of 34 Michelin Star restaurants in San Francisco. The vibrant, delicious flavors, along with the elegant interior is sure to amaze.
When you’re in the mood for Indian food (which in my life, is basically all the time), you’re going to want to head to Amber India. It’s the perfect spot for vegetarians and meat lovers alike, from their Harissa Paneer Kebab to their Frontier Lamb Chop, there truly is something on the menu for everyone!
Dreamforce 2021 does start on a Tuesday, so you know what that means? Taco Tuesday is in full effect! Head to Tropisueño for your fill of tacos, margaritas (their margarita menu is incredible), or the classic chips and guac. The fun inside décor and lively outdoor patio will be sure to have you relaxed after your long day.
Since you’ll be joining us at the start of Fall, you may get a day or two where it’s a little chillier in the evening. To help you stay warm, you can check out Ippudo for a tasty bowl of Ramen. Fun fact: Ippudo actually originated in Japan in 1985, with its first West Coast location opening in 2017. So you KNOW this place is going to be good!
Okay, so you might be saying, why is there a bakery on the list? But did you really think I was going to give you a whole restaurant list and NOT add dessert? No sir, no ma’am, that is not how I work. Beard Papa’s is THE place to go when your sugar craving hits. They are known for their delicious cream puffs, which you can personalize to your taste. You choose your shell, then your filling (may I suggest Honey Butter + Chocolate), and voilà, you have the perfect treat to go with your 3PM coffee or after dinner dessert.
