Weekly Hot Tips – March 31
While I’m reviewing as fast as I can, I can’t possibly eat at every lead I research. So, I’ve decided to put together a weekly post under ‘Must Try’, entitled Hot Tips of the Week, which will summarize the hot news and tips I read throughout the week. I have added a link to my review of the restaurants I’ve visited. Rest assured, the ones I haven’t are on the hit list for sure. I’ll start with restaurants, then food and wine, and finally a section under activities. Happy reading!!
San Francisco Restaurants
Travel and Leisure Magazine’s April edition covers 95 Places to Eat Like a Local. You’d have to be a subscriber to access it, but I did find 100 Ways to Eat Like a Local, with different offerings, on their website. I’m excited to try the Smoked Trout Sandwich at San Francisco’s Bar Tartine. I never knew that the Beverly Hills Hotel has a classic diner inside. Las Vegas’ Spring Mountain Rd. is loaded with great Chinese food. Balthazar in New York is now on my list.
