About Mark Sullivan

Mark Sullivan is the chef/partner for Spruce, The Village Pub, Mayfield Bakery & Cafe, and Pizza Antica. His elegant yet approachable food has made his restaurants both a local’s favorite and a destination restaurant for out-of-towners. It’s also what landed him on the cover of Food and Wine magazine as one of “America’s Best New Chefs” of 2002, and most recently led to his recognition as chef at Spruce in Esquire magazine’s 2008 “Best New Restaurants” issue.

Where I Go Out

At My Venues

French omelet
$$$, Full Bar, Modern, New American, Presidio Heights
"I love this omelet and brie dish on the brunch menu. It's sexy, custardy, rich, decadent, and silky but so simple and always perfectly executed. I drive across town just to sit at their bar and eat this."
Spruce burger
$$$, Full Bar, Modern, New American, Presidio Heights
"Call me partial, but I find this to be the perfect burger—housemade bun (it's not a bakery), pickled onions and zucchini, remoulade, and fries. Add house-cured pancetta and an egg, and you've neared nirvana."
