Boasting a broad variety cuisines from all over the world, San Francisco is the perfect city for foodies.
For the best in fine Californian cuisine, go to Gary Danko. It may be pricey, but the outstanding food and service are worth it. Or indulge in an extravagant French dinner at Fleur de Lys.
Meanwhile, Delfina prepares delicious Italian-style food with seasonal, local ingredients.
Quince takes inspiration from Italian and French cuisines to create delicious new dishes.
For fusion cuisine, Benu is a must. Creative dishes combining local ingredients with Asian flavors and techniques will excite adventurous eaters.
There are also plenty of excellent choices for Chinese food in San Francisco. Go to Ton Kiang for dim sum based on cuisine from the Hakka region of China.
There are also a number of restaurants that have stood the test of time serving simple, regional food. Swan Oyster Depot has been serving delicious, amazingly fresh seafood since 1912, and it’s still as popular as ever and Zuni Café is another established local favorite. Except for a few signature dishes, like the widely praised roast chicken, the menu changes every day.
San Francisco’s restaurants are among the world’s best because they all emphasize creativity, variety, and high quality.
