Keep walking along California towards the waterfront. Pass by the famed Tadich Grill, which dates to 1849 and is the “oldest continuously run restaurant in California.” Tadich Grill now sits next to one of the city’s newest acclaimed restaurants, Estiatorio Ornos a Michael Mina Restaurant.
Also appearing in the film is 150 California. The building features a 330-foot-high glass feature with a rooftop spire. Follow California east until it reaches Market Street. Visit the Harry Bridges Plaza at the Embarcadero, another film location, in front of the Ferry Building. Artists, skateboarders, and others congregate at the plaza to enjoy the view.
Inside the landmark Ferry Building, sample local Bay Area favorites. Grab a cup of Blue Bottle Coffee, Humphry Slocombe ice cream, macarons from Miette, or sample oysters from Hog Island Oyster Company. If the outdoor Farmers Market is open, explore the stalls of fruit, vegetables, flowers, herbs, meats, cheeses, and more from small regional farmers and producers.
Once you’re full, walk south to the end of nearby Pier 14 for some of the best views of the Bay, including many of the landmarks seen in the film’s sweeping skyline shots.
A Few Fan Extras
Salesforce Tower (415 Mission Street), the tallest building in the city, appears in skyline scenes in the film. Day for Night by artist Jim Campbell is a dynamic LED installation that circles the crown of the building. Enjoy a visit to the nearby Salesforce rooftop park, which sits 70-feet above the Grand Hall and runs the length of the four-block transit center. Several nearby intersections can be seen in The Matrix Resurrections, including Fremont and Mission streets.
The Avery at 488 Folsom Street in SoMa appears to be Neo’s home in the film. (The bathtub scene in the trailer is the giveaway). The 56-story glass tower is a luxury residential building with breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay and the cityscape.
Filming also took place on Powell between California and Market streets. For an iconic San Francisco experience, take a cable car ride from the Powell Street Cable Car Turnaround located just off Market Street past Union Square and California Street. The cable car ride ends at Fisherman’s Wharf.
For one last "Matrix Moment” take BART to your next destination. A pivotal fight scene in the film takes place at a downtown station.
