LaLyd’s San Francisco faves: Benu, SOMA, chef from French Laundry. Frances, Perello in the Castro. Quince, not sure how it translates to new locale, was favorite of ours in Pacific Heights. Spruce love it, trendy spot in Presidio Heights. Here are the top 100 recent picks, including Oakland and the East Bay.
A Cote and Plum are the hot spots in Oakland. Just a BART stop or two away across the Bay in SF are standards that still salivate after all these years, Boulevard and One Market. For our money, Slanted Door in the Ferry Building, again a stone’s throw across the bay from Oakland, worth a trip from Western Mass. Each dish is a memorable Asian delicacy. Down the Embarcadero to Four, Dane Boryta, local Hilltown grown, original of ertswhile Circa in Northampton, is Executive Chef at Sens. So, Annie Pants, lots to chew on!
