A Japanese bathouse in the Tenderloin.
The latest addition to San Francisco’s quietly up-and-coming Tenderloin District is Onsen, a Japanese-inspired bathhouse and restaurant housed in a former auto-body shop. The restaurant’s seasonal menu features a variety of elevated Japanese dishes and small bites, from rice porridge with house kimchi to assorted skewers and daily sashimi offerings. The restaurant offers a selection of sakes, and you can enjoy a variety of teas and tisanes from Japan in the adjacent tearoom. The space is also home to a 104-degree communal bath, a redwood cedar sauna, steam room, cold plunge shower and six treatment rooms for massage, acupuncture, reiki and body treatments. 466 Eddy St., 415.780.4987, onsensf.com
