Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The third entry in the Slow Food city guide series spotlights more than 500 recommended restaurants, markets, and bars in San Francisco and the surrounding area. Like its predecessors, The Slow Food Guide to San Francisco is designed for "eco-gastronomic travelers," that is, adventurous people who seek quality, tradition, and use of fresh, seasonal, and locally grown ingredients.
Library Journal
Slow Food is a global organization that promotes a better food system though programs and education addressing such topics as valuing food, maintaining food traditions, and sustainability and biodiversity. This title by Slow Food members Brackett, Sue Moore, and Wendy Downing, the third in a series of alternate food guides to North American cities that includes guides to Chicago and New York City, lists more than 500 restaurants, food shops, markets, and bars throughout the San Francisco Bay Area that Slow Food considers reflective of the movement. Organized by cuisine type and indexed by neighborhood and city, the book offers succinct and lively descriptions that vary in length from just a paragraph to a page but provide insight into each establishment's ambience, identify specialties of the house, and even offer tips, such as where it's best to sit. A snail icon, the Slow Food mascot, accompanies establishments that show exceptional support for sustainability and biodiversity. Many long-term and well-known establishments are included in addition to newer ones. Recommended for public libraries in Northern California and public libraries with large travel sections.-Louise Feldmann, Colorado State Univ.
