Unless you’re a whiz with San Francisco’s public transport system, the easiest way to reach Spruce (3640 Sacramento St. between Locust Spruce and Streets) is by car. Some street parking may be available, but check posted signs for restrictions; the only public parking is at the hospital garage on Cherry Street at California Street. It may be worth popping for valet, which is offered after 5 p.m. in front of the restaurant. Coming from downtown? A 20-minute taxi ride is another option, and it should cost about $15. No trains serve the Laurel Heights neighborhood, but bus lines 1 California, 2 Clement and 3 Jackson do. Allow 45 minutes from downtown to give you plenty of wiggle room in this case.
