SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Tired of scrolling through Yelp to find the perfect food outing?
Three Bay Area restaurants are apparently among the world’s 50 best, according to a list by 50 Best. They’re not for the casual diner, however. If you set out to try one of these meals, be prepared to plan well in advance – with reservations and your bank account balance.
22 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco
Operating in the Yerba Buena area of San Francisco for just over 10 years now, Benu offers a high-end experience for diners. 50 Best highlights its thousand-year-old quail’s egg with ginger and cabbage.
131 North St, Healdsburg
Make this Japanese restaurant your dinnertime spot after wine tasting! Located in Sonoma County, the menu relies on fresh ingredients grown on their own farm. Although their dishes have seasonal availability, 50 Best highlights the black cod ibushi-gin with burnt morels.
#48: Atelier Crenn
3127 Fillmore St, San Francisco
This cozy, French restaurant is led by the iconic Dominique Crenn, who was the first female chef in the U.S. to earn three Michelin stars, 50 Best said. The menu is described as elegant, and you don’t want to skip the desserts by pastry chef Juan Contreras.
