Offerings reflect the Bay Area's cultures and cuisines.
San Francisco, CA (July 12, 2022) – Today, the Presidio Trust announced the first roster of mobile food vendors selected for the pilot of
Presidio Pop Up, an outdoor daily food and beverage program at the new
Presidio Tunnel Tops. Both Presidio Pop Up and Presidio Tunnel Tops open to the public on Sunday, July 17.
Presidio Pop Up will offer delicious food at approachable prices that celebrates the diverse cultures and cuisines of the Bay Area. A variety of mobile food providers including trucks, carts, and tents will operate on a rotating schedule seven days a week, from 9 am to 6 pm. Presidio Pop Up builds on successful past Presidio food activations and will operate in several locations around Presidio Tunnel Tops. There are also two planned brick and mortar restaurants onsite—one at the Transit Center is slated to open later this year while the Trust is still seeking an operator for the other.
“We are so excited to partner with these local businesses for the opening season at Presidio Tunnel Tops. We know food is an important connector for people and part of creating a welcoming visitor experience,” Director of Visitor Engagement at the Presidio Trust Allison Stone said. “These vendors bring an exciting and varied line up of food and beverage options that offer a range of cuisines and price points. We hope the Presidio Pop Up at Tunnel Tops will provide something for everyone and add that extra something special to a day in the park.”
“The first quarter pilot at Presidio Tunnel Tops will help us understand how to provide a food experience that meets the needs of both visitors and vendors,” Stone said. “We look forward to learning from this. This is just the beginning of a great program we hope will grow along with visitation to this new national park destination.”

Built over the tops of the Presidio Parkway highway tunnels, the
Presidio Tunnel Tops site comprises 14 acres of new national park land—an instantly iconic “must see” San Francisco destination for visitors from across the country and around the world. Thoughtfully designed by James Corner Field Operations (the firm behind New York’s High Line), shaped by community input and funded by philanthropic gifts, the Presidio Tunnel Tops features scenic overlooks with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city, paths and gardens, a welcome plaza with food and visitor services, a campfire circle, picnic grounds, a nature play area, and more.
The Presidio is one of America’s most visited national park sites, located within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Spanning 1,500 acres next to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio is among the most biologically diverse parks in America. Historically a home to native peoples and a military post under three flags, its facilities have been reinvented as museums, restaurants, hotels, homes, and offices. The Presidio Trust is the federal agency that stewards the Presidio, in partnership with the National Park Service and with support from the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. The Trust sustains the Presidio by leasing homes and workplaces and offering visitor amenities. Learn more at
