Where to Eat Tonight: https://sf.eater.com/maps/best-restaurants-san-francisco-38
San Francisco is the birthplace of sourdough bread, and you find pungent, chewy loaves of it everywhere, particularly along Fisherman's Wharf. You also find moderately priced California wines just about everywhere -- thanks to the proximity of the Napa and Sonoma valleys, to the north.
This historical diversity has helped to create a city of adventurous diners and has kept chefs here busy inventing fare to satisfy their demanding clientele. The now-famous California cuisine, an ephemeral term that generally implies full-flavored dishes consisting of fresh, usually organic produce and meats and drawing inspiration from both European and Asian cookery, is a hallmark of that drive.
