Gusto 101

I've been to Gusto 101 several times and absolutely love it! They have a gorgeous patio which is heated in the winter. I only wish the restaurant was slightly less popular so that it wouldn't be so hard to get a seat! 
House wine (red or white) is just $1 per ounce, and you can order at any increments. The alcoholic demon inside of me is leaping in excitement!
Polipo ($14.50) - Grilled octopus, chimichurri, olive tapenade, piquillo puree, arugula and fried capers
I'm not always a fan of grilled octopus, but this one was done well. The exterior was marvelously charred in the most delicious way, and the octopus itself was quite tender.

Good Bites Cafe (Bay Area)

I love finding hidden gems in my travels, and Good Bites Cafe came highly recommended by one of my sister's coworker. The tiny restaurant houses around 5 or 6 small tables so we had to wait quite a while for a seat. 
Complimentary pita and hummus arrived at our table. The hummus was, hands down, the best I've ever had, and I could have easily filled up very satisfyingly just from this. I am still dreaming about it!
