In my ongoing quest to cover both sports and food at the same time, I occasionally like to write about some of my favorite places to eat near AT&T Park. This week, I'm excited to tell you about *two* of my favorite little gems that each have their own distinct charm and character.
I'll start with Red's, the tiny little shack of a place that sits below the Bay Bridge on Pier 30. The thing I love most about Red's Java House is what you see is what you get. What you see is a longstanding San Francisco institution that could best be described as a dive bar. What you get is no-frills food, a back patio that sits on the water and cheap beer. And on a sunny San Francisco day before a baseball game (when I'm not working), there's no place I'd rather be.
