Restaurant Round Up for SF, North, South and East Plus the Lastest in Dine About and Restaurant Week Info for SF, Oakland

Here's an excellent resource for dining in the Bay area (San Francisco, East Bay, North Bay and South Bay) from KQED FM, a local NPR affiliate.

Click on this link for the audio of a recent program featuring local food critics and authorities discussing their restaurant recommendations and a list of those restaurants (with a Google map).

The only flaw is that the list of restos doesn't have links so you'll have to seek those out yourself (sorry).

And while we are on the subject of Bay area restaurants, Dine About in San Francisco is up and running (January 15-31).  Special deals on special meals!   Follow the links for more info and a list of participating restaurants and on-line reservation resource.

Oakland's Restaurant Week gets started tomorrow, January 18, and goes to January 27. Check the site for full list, deals and reservation info.  Since Oakland's resturants don't get the coverage SF's do, I thought I'd highlight some of the participating Oakland restaurants I've tried and can recommend.

Amba
Bay Wolf
Bocanova
Camino
Disco Volante
Flora
Italian Colors
Yoshi's

I've written about a meal at Yoshi's sometime ago, you can see that here.

Several of the Oakland restos are near BART stations.
For transit directions to all the Bay area restaurants, please go to the 511.org trip planner.
