Culinary Innovation in Action:
“San Francisco restaurants and chefs have been a driving force in global culinary innovation for decades, and there are countless examples of local establishments leading the way in experimentation, advancement, and excellence. The bar food, Friday snacks and late night food is the best in the world.”

Taste and Technology
San Francisco is the home of Salesforce, Twitter, LinkedIn, Square, Pinterest, and countless tech startups. All that innovation works up an appetite and not just any greasy slice will do.
Eat, Drink and Be Merry
What would the Bay Area be without its wine? As one of the world’s top producers of everything from Chardonnay to Zinfandel, a visit to San Francisco wouldn’t be complete without a trip to wine country, just an hour away. Whether its late night food, party snacks, or bar food you will find it here.
This is definitely a spirited town, fond of its martinis, Pisco Punch and Irish Coffee. Mixology is a serious science and craft cocktails approach alchemy.
San Francisco has also become a brewer’s paradise. There are almost as many different kinds of local beer to sample as there are local wines. Brewery tours are on offer, including San Francisco’s original Anchor Brewing.
With so many options, travelers never go hungry in San Francisco. Frequent visitors keep a running list of which places to try on their next visit, which always keeps them coming back.
