2011 Restaurant Resolutions – An Endless Pursuit
Some people make New Year’s resolutions. Apparently I make New Year’s restaurant resolutions.
“I will make time to explore more. I must stop ordering takeout from the same establishment month after month. I insist upon pushing my taste buds’ boundaries with new flavors and textures.”
These are just a few of the restaurant resolutions I’m keeping in 2011 – and it doesn’t stop there. After moving to San Francisco last June, I found myself dwarfed by the endless dining options in every neighborhood I stumbled upon. So, in an effort to expand my culinary horizons, I made a list. A list of 10 restaurants I want to try, which quickly became 20 I just had to check out and suddenly grew to 40 I obviously couldn’t miss. You do the math … that’s approximately 1-2 restaurants per week this year.
Of course as with most good finds, I’m sure the best restaurants are going to be those randomly recommended late in the game by friends and new acquaintances. So in the spirit of sharing, you tell me: what foodie finds do you recommend I add to the list?
In the meantime, please keep my wallet and waistline in your prayers!
