Although San Francisco's Marina District is no stranger to outstanding Japanese food (There must be no less than 50 California-style sushi bars between Lombard and Chestnut Streets), there has always been an enormous lack of upscale fusion places in the area. Well, that gap just closed a little with a great new restaurant called Hime, which opened late last year and has received nothing but rave reviews. Renowned Chef Eichii Mochizuki has created an eatery that is ideal for both adventurous foodies and the dining audience in general. We ate there recently and our taste buds went ballistic....

Asia SF represents what San Francisco stands for on so many levels. Itâ€™s a wild combination of sexy, forbidden, naughty, unique, tasty and hip. The food has been described as Cal-Asian cuisine, and the entertainers are called gender illusionists, but Asia SF is basically great grub and grand drag. Almost eight years ago, Owners Larry Hashburger and Skip Young opened this place, and this restaurant/lounge/dance club instantly became a SF entertainment landmark. Itâ€™s a super popular spot for bachelor, bachelorette and birthday parties and the staff there really knows how to deal with big,... Read More
Staying true to the recipe: Gaby's Pizza
Philadelphia is famous for its cheesesteaks, and New York City is famous for its cheesecake, but last week a Queens eatery hit the number one spot for pizza not dessert.
Off of Hillside Ave. and Francis Lewis Blvd. in Queens Village sits a rather small Italian restaurant called Gaby's Pizza. Serving nearly 1,000 customers per day, Gab'™s Pizzeria'™s top selling plain cheese pies helped gain them recognition on the Rachel Ray Television Show.
On an internet poll, Gaby's was voted number one out of 5,970 pizzerias across New York... Read More
I have been a Casa Bianca lover for over 10 years now and to this day, I think they have one of the best pizzas in town and is definitely deserving of the kudos that I'm giving it. Before I say anymore, I should preface that the praise is really just for the pizza. I've tried their various pasta offerings over the years and have never been wowed by any of them. As for the pizza, there are so many reasons why I love it, that I almost don't know where to start, so I'll just start from the bottom and work my way up. First, I love the crust. Without fail, it's always thin, light and crusty and... Read More
It's amazing who you can meet at the grocery store. My fiance and I were at the Marina Safeway in San Francisco yesterday when I saw a woman who looked familiar. I'm really bad at remembering names, but I never forget a face. I also don't have a problem bothering celebrities in public. It took me a few minutes to figure out who she was, but then I realized it was one of the contestants from one of my favorite reality shows, Top Chef. Her name is Marisa Churchill and she lives in the Fillmore District. I walked up to her and immediately struck up a conversation. In the Top Chef II series,... Read More
