Architect Renzo Piano designed the beautiful dining room.

Where to Stay // The Fairmont Hotel
After it was damaged in the 1906 earthquake, this Nob Hill Grande Dame was restored by U.S. architect Julia Morgan, who restored many other California buildings.

Morning // Haas-Lilienthal House
This Queen Anne-style Victorian from 1886 is the only private home from the era open to the public.

Afternoon // Maiden Lane
This pedestrian haven between Geary and Post streets is lined with cafés, shops and the Xanadu Gallery, housed inside San Francisco’s only Frank Lloyd Wright building.

Dinner // The Moss Room
Architect Renzo Piano designed the beautiful dining room, while the modern Californian menu highlights local and organic ingredients, prepared by top local chefs Loretta Keller and Charles Phan.

*Mission Dolores is the oldest building in the city, still with its original building and a Basilica, and it's an integral part of the city's historic and religious history.
