The San Francisco Bay Area is a foodie’s paradise. The city is home to numerous restaurants, and is the birthplace of the local variety of sourdough bread, the Mission burrito, and steam beer. Fisherman’s Wharf has served local specialty Dungeness crab for decades. Food companies include Anchor Brewing Company, Boudin Bakery, the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company.

Famous past and present restaurants include the Tonga Room, Fleur de Lys, Greens, Original Joe’s, Stars, Vesuvio Cafe and the Top of the Mark. California Cuisine and fusion cuisine are prominent cuisines in the city. Food trucks are a source of ethnically diverse, and gourmet street foods, with concentrations of various trucks at regular times and places. Notable grocery stores, which often focus on locally-grown organic produce, include the Rainbow Grocery Cooperative and Bi-Rite Market. Johnny Kan opened one of the first modern Chinese restaurants, in Chinatown in 1953.

Forty-six distinct cuisines are represented in the MICHELIN Guide San Francisco, Bay Area & Wine Country 2012, which showcases the spectacular culinary diversity of the region.
