About the Author
More About the Author
Since Marcia was a teenager, she has been an unofficial culinary concierge for her friends and family, who came to rely on her knack for providing the perfect restaurant recommendation. After launching her weekly tablehopper e-column in 2006 and receiving an onslaught of requests from her readers, Marcia started "tip please," a free customized restaurant recommendation service on her site.
1,500 restaurant recommendations later, Marcia realized that her readers were always looking for restaurants by situation, and rarely by neighborhood or cuisine. Whether it's a group of out-of-towners trying to find that quintessential San Francisco experience, a birthday group seeking a rowdy place for a party of 10, or a nervous couple on a blind date, people want a personal recommendation from a well-connected local--not a faceless guidebook. Her solution to these dining dilemmas is her first book: The Tablehopper's Guide to Dining and Drinking in San Francisco: Find the Right Spot for Every Occasion from Ten Speed Press.
The four-year-old tablehopper column was voted "Most Obsessive Restaurant Informant" by 7x7 magazine, San Francisco magazine's Best of the Bay Area 2008 and 2009: Reader's Choice for "Best Bay Area Scoop," and "Best Fresh Scuttlebutt" by the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
Marcia has appeared on Oprah & Friends: The Gayle King Show; Playboy TV; the Martha Stewart Living Today radio show, and many local programs. She also writes for San Francisco magazine, the Foodie 411 column for the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau, Edible San Francisco, and Northside.
