If I Rolled My Eyes Any Harder, I'd Swallow Them
The Chronicle's (or should I say Michael Bauer's) Top 100 list was published today.
I'm pleased to see many of my favorites there, but I have to say that the way-past-it's-glory-days Sushi Ran has no business being there when Sebo and Kiss (not to mention Minako) are not, nor do I understand how Betelnut manages to remain there. Don't even get me started on the well prepared but oh-so-pedestrian Bistro Aix. It's as if there is some rule that 20% of the list must be comprised of restaurants in the Marina. And for fuck's sake, people, there are much better taquerias out there than La Taqueria! Many of them. I seriously think the staff hasn't set foot in another taqueria since they started the list twelve years ago.
But I suppose I'm just one of those online amateurs having a free for all right now, so don't take my word for it. Eat there yourselves and get back to me.
Disappointed is the word of the day, kids.
