I’ve done several San Francisco Posts, but clearly not enough. Guessss I have to keep going back  field research for more content;) One of my favorite things about SF is the amount of food that you have access to. I do mean quantity of restaurants, but mostly I mean all the different styles of cuisine and different levels of cooking. Last I checked, SF beat out NYC for the most 3 star Michelin awards in the United States. Not that you can dine at those every night while on vacation, but still! It's a cool fact. There are also plenty of 1 star awards in the city as well. 

Anyway, when looking back through all of my San  Francisco post, I realized I hadn't done a food and drink post. Why?! I feel like this is often the hardest thing to decide on, so why not help you out? I actually did a Where to Eat and Drink in New York City post last year. I switched up my format a bit, so you'll have to tell me which you prefer.
