Nine to Go...

And by that I mean nine restaurants on the Chronicle's list of top 100 restaurants. Now I believe I've already mentioned that this is a sort of checklist for us. Every year, though, we run into the same damn problem. It's like losing those last ten pounds -- we just can't get through the last 5-10 places no matter how we try.

But this year, I'm buckling down. I will eat at House of Prime Rib if it kills me. I will make those long overdue visits to Aziza and Kokkari. And I will drag Jon's cute little ass to Mecca whether he likes it or not. I'm on a mission.

The new list is usually published the first weekend in April (which, coincidentally, seems like when my show is now going to close), so I don't have a lot of time. But I do have faith, and that's what really matters, right? How's about an "Amen?"

If I make it this year, you can bet your gorgeous gullets that I'll throw a big ass party, with an acceptance speech and all.

Consider this the Restaurant Whore Olympics.

Well of COURSE you're going to HOPR... the reservations have been made!

And as for Aziza, well, I'm inviting myself, b/c C hasn't been yet. And, well, it's just damn time.

When you do Aziza you must do the chef's tasting menu! It's about $40 and totally worth it. The whole table must order it so go with folks who will cooperate. I think F&C fit the bill.

Great blog!!! I'm also a San Francisco restaurant....girl, and I love reading about the places you've eaten. I hope you'll check out my blog, which is an insider's perspective on the SF restaurant scene.

Please, please, please eat at HOPR. I just went there for the first time and am kicking myself for not going there for 13 years of living here. What a snob I have become. HOPR RULES!!

Recently I came across a philosophy book that I had taken from a HOPR bookcase a while back. Look out for cool books when you go.

I just read the list. I've been to 2 of them. And 1 was many years ago. So, I would say, I've been to 1 out of 100.
That's kinda underwhelming.
