A graduation day deserves a grand celebration. There are many ways to celebrate your big day, but instead of a traditional post-ceremony meal, try something new. Here are 5 unique graduation dinner ideas in San Francisco.
If you feel like upscale dining with your family, think in advance to reserve – depending on your party size – a booth or ohana table at Liholiho Yacht Club. This classy place is only a short walking distance away from The Zombie Village, the latest tiki noir bar by the Future Bars group. Then, go for tiki cocktails at the Tonga Room.

Bi-Rite’s choice of hot and cold made-to-order sandwiches will satisfy both vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores. If craving some greens to go with your meats, order a fried chicken salad.
