BEST OF THE BAY


I consider myself a foodie -- but not the most adventurous type. I'm a picky eater to begin with and I have some dietary restrictions. Nonetheless, I appreciate food and I love exploring a place through its culinary offerings.

The Bay Area is home to me and cuisines of all types. I'm very lucky that I grew up in an area where there were endless options for food.
