Rouge et Blanc is one of our favorite wine bars in San Francisco and an amazing place to relax with a glass of wine and appetizers after work in the Union Square area. Brought to you by Chef Laurent Manrique and the team at Café de la Presse (another fave) the bar has a warm interior designed by restaurateur Cameron Hirigoyen and well selected menu.
Tip: they also serve really fantastic coffee and breakfast bites in the morning.
Join us behind the scenes in conversation with the manager Olivier Daridon.

Q: What would you pair with a glass of eco.love?
