Good News re SF Blog Restaurant Reviews

And Bay Area Blogger of the Week # 62

"but I suspect you could melt some decent fontina over dog food and make yourself a nice meal"
(A few reservations on Wichcraft)

A Few Reservations is a new local blog writing about dining out in San Francisco from a non-meat-eating point of view...
Even in my beloved left-wing, local-produce, low-mileage, Alice Waters-worshiping city, it's tough to find a genuinely exquisite vegetarian meal. Especially if you're dining out with non-veg friends. So out of the vegetarian ghetto and into the mainstream I go, delicately picking my way across the city's best menus. It's one thing to review a restaurant when you can eat everything they offer. It's another to test the mettle of their solitary "alternatives". Be warned, though. I'm gonna eat some fish along the way. Because there are times when I just can't hack another night of Pasta Primavera.

Do You Blog San Francisco Restaurant Reviews?
Then You Need BlogSoop!


In 2006, Doug at BlogSoop started to build a comprehensive site for food blogs and restaurant reviews. BlogSoop's database of nearly 5000 restaurant reviews, created by tracking over 100 blogs, provides an easy means to access the best food content allowing users to search by neighborhood, cuisine, zip code or restaurant name.

Currently limited to New York the site, which launched a couple of weeks ago, wants to add San Francisco to its roster. If you're a Bay Area food blogger interested in having your restaurant reviews included in the Soop, drop Doug a line. Details here.


I am beginning to lose track of all the local food blogs - there are so many now.
Here is a list of food blogs in and around (and missing) the area I've recently come across and which I don't think I have mentioned before...

    Every year is year of the pig for me too. And almost every day is day of the bacon. Umm, almost time for lunch.

    The more I return to A Few Reservations the more I love it - there are some gems in there - there really are - like this one about a fancy dining experience:

    "The amuse bouche was a harbinger of things to come. Mine was a spear of asparagus fried in some sort of fuzzy, crispy batter, with a lemon aioli. Very TGIF. What next? A Bloomin’ Onion? My bouche was not amused."

    Looking back it I think I was a little bit disrespectful mentioning bacoon in the same post about vegetarian restaurant reviews. I hope I will be forgiven.
