St. Vincent Tavern & Wine Merchant Opens on Valencia

100-plus wines, beer on tap, and tavern fare in the Mission

st. vincent!

The Horde’s Prayer

Our wine bar, who art in the Mission,
St. Vincent be thy name.
Your time has come,
To open up,
In the spot formerly known as Heart.

Give us this day our pickled eggs,
Rolled pretzels, cheese plates,
Shareable spring lamb mixed roast,
and more of Bill Niles’s (Bar Tartine) modern tavern fare.

Palates you’ll whet,
With 100-plus worldly wines under $100,
By the half bottle, too,
Expertly sourced by owner, sommelier,
And James Beard-winning writer David Lynch (Quince, Cotogna).

Cicerone Sayre Piotrkowski (Monk’s Kettle),
Sources eight taps and an extensive list,
With brewery-direct draft beers.

Lead us into temptation,
Past the cabinet-turned-wine cooler,
To recycled wood tables with Danish school chairs,
Or the communal cherry wood table,
Near the wine and cheese cart;
Or to the zinc bar and chef’s counter,
With seven seats affront the open kitchen.

And deliver us our vino.

St. Vincent Tavern & Wine Merchant, 1270 Valencia Street, between 23rd and 24th Streets (415-285-1200 or stvincentsf.com).
