Yelp users bestowed a high honor on the Bay Area restaurant scene Wednesday, with several of the region’s eateries snagging prime positions on the review site's annual “Top 100 Places to eat in the US” list.
Curated using community opinion, the list includes only those restaurants that have garnered stellar reviews. Within the top 10 alone.
Cheese Board Pizza, a co-op in Berkeley that offers organic vegetarian pizzas, snagged the number two position. The restaurant is a favorite among UC Berkeley students thanks to live music, interesting ingredients and whole pizzas that can easily be squeezed into a tight budget.
San Francisco’s famed Gary Danko came in at number six. It’s no surprise, considering the eatery is beloved by locals and tourist alike. Though the menu is a tad pricey, users on Yelp have applauded the restaurant’s foie gras and roast Maine lobster. It’s probably not a great spot for a quick lunch, but for a celebratory evening it appears to be perfect.
A slew of other Bay Area restaurants fall outside of the top ten, but are still featured within the list. All told, San Francisco and New York City make the most appearances on the ranking.
The French Laundry (57), Little Lucca Sandwhich Shop & Deli (87), The Codmother Fish and Chips (83), Arizmendi Bakery (55), Lou’s Café (53), Kokkari Estiatorio (26) and Ike’s Place (24) are some of the other restaurants featured.
