The Tablehopper’s Guide

Whether you live in San Francisco and are looking for the best place to catch up with a friend or meet a client, or you’re visiting for the weekend and want to know where to get the best espresso, the Bay Area’s unofficial culinary concierge, Marcia Gagliardi (known to her e-newsletter readers as the Tablehopper), has you covered in her new book, The Tablehopper’s Guide to Eating and Drinking in San Francisco (Ten Speed, 2010). The Dear Abby of San Francisco’s food and drink scene, Gagliardi cleverly arranged the book by situation (i.e.: girls’ night out, dining with an ex, where to take the folks) based on real requests she’s received from people who are searching for personalized recommendations for life’s individual occasions. Candid and witty, with immeasurable insider tips on the city’s culinary scene, this guidebook will have locals rediscovering their own backyard and out-of-towners packing their bags (and stretchy pants) and booking the next flight to SFO.
