I am available for consulting appointments via phone or in person re: the best in food and drink, restaurant/bar/drink concepts and menus, social media, trends in restaurants, bars, food, cocktails, craft distilling, all categories of spirits, beer, wine, and more.
Each year, I travel to over 20 cities and countries around the world and regularly visit cities like NY, LA, Chicago, New Orleans, Denver, with on-the-ground information on trends, strengths and weaknesses in dining, food, drink, distilling, beer and wine scenes globally, nationally and regionally. I can speak intimately to San Francisco, Wine Country and Northern California trends. I have visited countless distilleries, wineries and breweries around the world, sampling finished products alongside liquid in varied stages of production or aging.
Please email virginia[at]theperfectspotsf.com for consulting requests/needs, priced per hour or per project.
or Meal/Drink Recommendations
Researching and visiting over 600 restaurants a year, both in the Bay Area and around the globe, plus wineries, distilleries, breweries and craft cocktail bars, alongside my years of expertise and research as a restaurant critic, food/cocktail/spirits/wine/travel writer and editor, means I can provide you unique, insider recommends, as focused on certain cuisines or cities as you wish.
If you’re a hardcore foodie and or drink aficionado who wants recommendations from someone who literally eats, sleeps and breathes food and drink in an endless quest for the best and the authentic, I can provide recommendations that even many locals don’t know about or help you sift through the popular/hot restaurants and cocktail bars of the moment for what is overhyped and what is worth your time.
I provide personalized itineraries and recommendations based on your location, preferences and interests. My packages are priced based on the level of information you desire and time and expertise to compile those lists. Please email virginia[at]theperfectspotsf.com with your itinerary or meal recommendation requests.
