San Francisco is my home, and it's a fantastic place to live for a foodie like me. From my apartment, I can walk 360 degrees in all directions and find a cornucopia of great places to eat. Some are world-renowned, expensive and very upscale, and some are casual neighborhood places frequented mostly by locals. I think the local places are my favorite because the food is often as good as the famous places, but you can relax, bring a bottle of wine if you like, and they are not so hard on the wallet. Having said that, I would not trade any of the dining experiences we've had at the upscale places, it's just all good! These pages will show some of my favorite dishes that my wife Joyce and I have enjoyed in our ten years in this food and cocktail obsessed city. Oh, did I forget to mention cocktails - yeah, SF does them right too!
