More than five hundred recommended restaurants, everything from Indian restaurants in the city's Tenderloin District, to those temples of California cuisine that have helped define the way Americans look at food today.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - 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.
