Throughout this time, many restaurants were forced to shut down temporarily due to either not enough demand or other issues due to the pandemic. Fortunately, as the pandemic begins to subside and vaccines are starting to roll out on a more conistent basis, many of these restaurants that have been forced to close their doors and quickly reopening during this year. Here are a few great restaurants to check out that are finally reopening their doors. This short list definitely does not contain all the restaurants reopening but it seems the summer of 2021 is the season of much of the Bay Area's food scene to come back to life.

1. Abacá

Abacá is found alongside Fisherman's Wharf and is one of the restaurants that are found inside of the Kimpton Alton Hotel. This establishment is an amazing place to hit up for some traditional Filipino cuisine.
