Arguably one of the most desirable and exclusive zip codes in the U.S., Hillsborough is remarkable for countless reasons. High-profile properties with verdant gardens, effortless access to one of the world’s most exciting cities, exquisite architecture, and the ultimate in seclusion are just a few reasons residents settle down in Hillsborough.
As one of the few places in California with no commercial zoning, Hillsborough is ranked as one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the country. And while Hillsborough may be entirely residential, it doesn’t mean its well-heeled residents aren’t mere minutes away from the best the San Francisco Bay Area offers.
Hillsborough primarily comprises luminaries keen on escaping the limelight, retirees who welcome the chance to play golf and tennis, successful professionals who work remotely or in San Francisco, San Mateo, or Silicon Valley, and artists who treasure the quiet to work on their masterpieces. Hillsborough residents savor their intimate, tight-knit community and are often found perusing the shops in the outlying cities or hiking on one of the many marvelous trails.
Hillsborough proper lacks commercial businesses, including boutiques, bars, and restaurants, but that’s part of its appeal. Instead, when residents want a taste of entertainment, they’re a short drive away from world-class venues.
All Spice is one of the hundreds of area gems. Historical charm and a contemporary ethos converge in the 100-plus-year-old home where this vibrant San Mateo restaurant is located. Specializing in innovative California cuisine, All Spice plates beautiful dishes teeming with hyper-fresh seasonal ingredients on their three and five-course tasting menus. Yuzu-crusted salmon crudo with edamame-avocado mousse, poached halibut with pears and pepper chutney, and Earl Gray and lemongrass creme brulee are just three of the options on their inventive menu.
Stella Alpina Osteria is another nearby stand-out. Situated in the lively city of Burlingame just minutes away, this Italian hotspot features a range of beautiful dishes, from truffle-stuffed gnocchi with brown butter sage sauce to osso buco with mascarpone polenta. Linger over a glass of vintage wine and one of their mouthwatering desserts; their warm apple galette with vanilla bean gelato is unforgettable.
