SF Chronicle: 2008 Bay Area’s Best New Restaurants

sf-chronicle-logoOh how I love the controversy surrounding best of lists, especially when it comes to restaurants and critics.

Here is a link and here is the list 10 of Michael Bauer’s 13 three star reviews of 2008 (personal opinions when not N/A are in parenthesis).

Yoshi’s 1330 Fillmore St. (near Eddy), San Francisco; (415) 655-5600

Flora 1900 Telegraph Ave. (at 19th Street), Oakland; (510) 286-0100

Someone’s promised to take me here…

Bar Jules 609 Hayes St. (at Laguna), San Francisco; (415) 621-5482

Chez Papa Resto 4 Mint Plaza (off Fifth Street, between Market and Mission streets)

David Bazirgan has signed up to be one of the Inked Rogue Chefs.

Beretta 1199 Valencia St. (at 23rd Street), San Francisco

Murray Circle 601 Murray Circle (at East Road), Sausalito

Camino 3917 Grand Ave. (near Sunnyslope), Oakland

Somehow I only ordered 4 items off of the bar menu and my husband and I walked out of there for $180…most of the food we had was great but the thimble size drinks that made up for the other $150 were NOT worth it and less than memorable, although the opposite goes for the splendid medieval decor.

Corso 3917 Grand Ave. (near Sunnyslope), Oakland

Moss Room 55 Music Concourse Drive (in the California Academy of Sciences), San Francisco

I can’t wait to go here and Chef Alicia Jenish is signed on to be an Inked Rogue Chef.

Nettie’s Crab Shack 2032 Union St. (near Buchanan), San Francisco
