San Francisco is a city of neighborhoods where fine dining is part of everyday life. Savoring San Francisco 2 gathers recipes from over 100 of the city's favorite cafes, bistros, grills, and other eateries, ranging from chic hotel establishments and elegant four-star restaurants to tiny storefront eateries. The recipes come from nationally acclaimed chefs and include simple, ethnic dishes, Asian fusion cuisine, fresh local favorites, and everything in between. You'll find photographs and essays on 12 neighborhoods with a map and listings of restaurants by location and specialty, as well as special sections on farmers' markets, traditional San Francisco cuisine, and where to find specialties and classic California ingredients, among many other topics. From appetizers to desserts, including a variety of meats, poultry, fish, and vegetarian offerings, this unique cookbook and indispensable guide brings to life one of the world's most exciting food cities for tourists and locals alike.

Format: Paperback
This book is fabulous. Even for people who don't cook, the book is a great restaurant guide to San Francisco. I love the historical backgrounds of the neighborhoods. Very well written, with a sense of style, opinion, and irreverence. Very SF! I also find the layout, type treatments, and color very pleasing and easy to navigate. The beautiful black & white photographs give a great sense of the neighborhoods without being clichéd.

I would have prefered a few more recipes for the staples such as chicken, beef etc. Most of the recipes seemed a little esoteric to me and unlikely to be included in my every day cooking. Perhaps thats the intention of the book but I think they could have found a better balance.
