Opened April 2011, Radish is a Mission cafe-bar-gallery that connects art, food, and philanthropy. Radish operates on a fresh approach that will nourish your belly, mind, and conscience. All food is prepared either on the premises or delivered fresh from local sources, featuring local and seasonal ingredients for its ever-changing menu. Art from local talent graces the wall and is available to purchase or just to admire while you dine.
Radish is the creation of Emily Summers and Adam Hornbeck who are San Francisco transplants by way of the East Coast and South. The Southern influence is definitely palpable, with items such as shrimp corn dogs, catfish and hush puppies, bbq pork sandwich, and po’boys. Those seeking lighter fare will find Radish has a variety of items that cater to different tastes. On any given night their menu may feature gluten-free flatbread, a marinated tofu sandwich, gazpacho, artisan cheeses, and an array of salads with local produce. Most baked goods, sauces, spreads, and other items are made in-house and fresh. Teas and coffees from local, up-and-coming vendors are served here.
You can also feel good about dining for a cause. Radish is a supporter of the San Francisco-based Global Service Corps, an international volunteer service-learning and community development organization, focused on sustainable agriculture, food security education and development, and public health in developing countries.
The service at Radish is friendly and the atmosphere is warm, inviting, and convivial. For Mission dwellers, Radish lives up to its goal of being a “neighborhood standby,” a place to grab a drink and grub, but it is certainly worth making the trek from other parts of the city.
