From famous firsts like martinis and sourdough bread to iconic eats like Mission burritos and Dungeness crab, San Francisco is what foodie dreams are made of. Just beyond city limits are fertile fields, prized vineyards, and healthy seas, meaning that the freshest natural ingredients are never far out of reach.

This incredible bounty has attracted generations of the world’s most talented and daring chefs who have redefined their corners of the culinary world. All these resources and all this talent has led to the creation of some true San Francisco originals: cioppino, the martini, the Irish coffee, and Boudin sourdough bread, to name just a few. And it's no coincidence that San Francisco has more Michelin starred restaurants than any destination in the Americas.
