“I write because I want to remember. ” – Isabel Allende

In the throes of Fall, SF continues to experience balmy 70 degree days with the invigorating evening crisp of the season. I’m craving pumpkin-spiced tastes, awaiting family visits, and settling into a new home.

Top Tastes reflects the best new places  and dishes from my recent culinary explorations, while Imbiber captures my top tastes in drink, this round highlighting October events like Whiskyfest and Wine & Spirits Top 100. The Latest takes us to my Japanese favorite, Kappou Gomi.

Have five food/drink/travel-loving friends sign up for The Perfect Spot newsletter, and I’ll create “Perfect Meal” recommendations based on your request (e.g. exploring a new neighborhood or cuisine, date night, etc…) In Wandering Traveler, I regularly cover places all over, so let foodie-travel-adventurer friends beyond the Bay Area know, too.

I’d love your feedback on any spots visited from my site. As your personal concierge who tells it to you like a good friend would, I create personalized itineraries: trips, meals, explorations (check out “Services“).

Let me guide you to the perfect spot!
