Tis the season to stuff your face, and where better than San Francisco, where it’s impossible to eat badly, says Guardian restaurant reviewer Marina O’Loughlin in her guide to the city’s fabulous food scene
For the rabid restaurant fan like me, a trip to San Francisco is like being dropped into a sweetie shop with the key thrown away. There’s a restaurant in San Francisco for every 376 people, the highest density in the US.
The odds are stacked in the city’s favour: the local produce is magnificent with peachy fresh seafood – Dungeness crabs in season and Hog Island oysters. And the sunny terrain surrounding the foggy city bursts with fertility – and it’s not just grapes.
