The Big Eat 2016 is here! This year's list is guaranteed to make your mouths water with 35 delectable new dishes—including an insanely luscious lobster roll, our new favorite ramen, and the already culty fries at America's best new restaurant. As always, the list promises a smattering of San Francisco's absolute hottest and most beloved restaurants, with a variety of meats, sweets, sides, and veggies at every price point and in every neighborhood of San Francisco.
The first thing one notices when entering Leo’s Oyster Bar (besides the massive palm fronds that unfurl across the pastel tropical wallpaper covering the restaurant’s soaring atrium) is the glow.
Walnut Creek may seem a world away to a San Franciscan, but consider this: a 35-minute BART trip is significantly shorter than a flight to Spain for foodies seeking delicious Barcelona-style tapas. Make Telefèric Barcelona your tasty reason to make the short trek east.
The luxification of Mid-Market continues today with the opening of Cadence, the swank new sister restaurant to neighboring cocktail and jazz bar, Mr. Tipple's Recording Studio. The two venues, from Maven partner Jay Bordeleau, join neighborhood culinary pioneers Alta CA, Bon Marche, and Dirty Water.

If there’s one city that tops most travel wish lists these days, its Mexico City—the capital of our southern neighbor is undeniably on the lips of every tastemaker for its hot-as-fire food scene, among other things. And when one talks of Mexico City, Gabriela Cámara’s name is sure to come up.
Gabriela Cámara is kind of a big deal in the food world. The chef and restaurateur owns four restaurants in Mexico, including her 17-year-old famed seafood-centric flagship, Contramar. She’s chummy with Diana Kennedy, and has been featured in Food & Wine and Bon Appetit.
