Dear San Francisco,
How did six years go by in the blink of an eye? It seems like only yesterday I arrived - hardened and slightly bitter from my two years on the east coast. It was my second time moving to a city sight unseen and, unlike my first attempt, I instantly fell madly, head over heels, hopelessly in love with you.

Last week, our friends Dawn and Marq invited us to join them at Opaque, a restaurant that allows its patrons to experience dining in a completely unique way: in the dark. This European trend arrived to SF a few years and the point is for the diners to use their senses of taste, touch, sound and smell, rather than sight, when eating.

What a great weekend for so many reasons!

Last week one of my favorite San Francisco restaurant blogs, Eater SF, updated their 38 Essential San Francisco Restaurants. Most of the places included on this list are top of the line, rather schmancy establishments, but a solid list nonetheless. I often get asked for restaurant suggestions from friends and co-workers, so I decided to put together my list of Top Restaurants in San Francisco by category. ...
