Here Are The 10 Most Highly Rated Restaurants In San Francisco

These highly rated restaurants in San Francisco are go-big-or-go-home type spots. In other words, most of these gastronomic sensations require a good chunk of cash (or a very flexible expense account). This is because there are more than a handful of Michelin stars and James Beard award winners in this bunch, and even a few that have been among the “World’s 50 Best Restaurants” list. If you’d rather not dole out the money for these spots (especially #1), we do have good news: Many of these restaurants have corresponding cookbooks, so you can try your own hand at their most popular recipes — good luck!
