Places to eat like a local in the San Francisco Bay Area

Jump to last reply

We have started threads on where to eat like a local/favorite restaurants for the Los Angeles area and New York City. The San Francisco Bay Area seems like a natural addition. The idea is that as travelers, we frequently would like to eat in the places that local eats, rather than in the places that cater to tourists.

Aduchamp suggested the following guidelines for NYC. They seem like a good start:

Please tell all your favorite within these very simple guidelines:

Each category could be any cuisine in any area. The amount should not include the tip, tax, or any drinks. When you list you favorites, please be terse in the description but provide the type of cuisine, neighborhood, and favorite dish, if any. And please only submit only those restaurants where you have eaten in the previous twelve months. No second hand or outdated recommendations.

Thank you.

Categories:

Under $25 per person

$25-$50 a person

Over $50 a person

Stratospheric prices or places for special occasions.

I would define the Bay Area as anywhere in the general area that BART covers, plus all the way down to Silicon Valley and up to Marin County. That would mean generally the counties of San Francisco, Alameda, Marin, Contra Costa, San Mateo and Santa Clara.
