This is the best almond croissant I’ve ever had, and I do not say that lightly. For real, this is the kind of pastry that will haunt your dreams.
Taylor’s Automatic Refresher (aka Gott’s Roadside): Worth the Trip out to Wine Country (and Maybe a Plane Ticket Cross Country)
The Food Network will be proud to know that based on this one segment, showing off those ridiculously good looking tuna burgers, I planned an impromptu surprise trip to Napaâ€¦with Taylor’s Automatic Refresher naturally at the center of my itinerary. True Story.
Sushi Bistro keep sushi fresh and fun with innovative combinations of ingredients (and dish names). Case in point, the orgasmic Rock n’ Roll: sweet scallops smothered in kewpie mayonnaise spiked with sriracha (Thai-style hot chili sauce), and served on top of a California roll.

I love Giada. I love her simple yet sophisticated take on Italian food â€“ authentic flavors, beautiful presentations, and dishes/ingredients described in wonderfully poetic terms.

I love coffee. No, seriously. I really love it. There are few things as deeply satisfying as a rich, frothy, quality cup of coffee. I discovered my local Philz Coffee today in SoMa. When I took my first sip of the heavenly elixir I’ve come to think of as my liquid crack, it stopped me dead in my tracks.
