The New Queen of 
San Francisco Restaurants

In a city of dowager restaurateurs, you might say a pixie queen has emerged. 

The 38-year-old Anna Weinberg, protégé of Jonathan Waxman (he of New York’s Barbuto), first made her name with the market-driven Marlowe, recently relocated to Brannan Street (500 Brannan St.; 415-777-1413), then with American brasserie Park Tavern (1652 Stockton St.; 415-989-7300). Her latest, gastropub The Cavalier (360 Jessie St.; 415-321-6000), is a testament to her up-to-date eye for classics and her lighter-than-air approach to all three of her establishments.
