The world of Michelin stars gets ever more competitive for chefs but easier to manage as a diner.
Freddie Prinze Jr. releases the cookbook you’ve been waiting for your entire life
Re member when it was the '90s, and everything was better? Well, the '90s actor famous for having the most stable Hollywood marriage with his wife Sarah Michelle Gellar has finally answered our prayers and published a cookbook. It’s family-focused and rooted in Freddie's New Mexican upbringing. If you buy his book, now he will know what you did this summer. (That joke has been a long time coming.)
[jump] Michelin-starred.com makes eating fancy, easy
Getting a reservation is the second-hardest part of eating at a Michelin-starred restaurant, preceded only by not bragging about it too much. Thankfully, Googler Jake Chalkley has created a website, Michelin-Starred.com, where fine diners can access consolidated Michelin restaurant info, including tasting menu prices, how much time in advance to make a reservation, and the link to make the res. Plan away, foodies.

Summer has come, bringing new restaurants with it
You can tell summer has arrived in San Francisco because the day started out with rain. Sorry tourists! Come back in August. In any case, Eater SF has put together a list of all the new eateries and drinkeries that are gracing our shores this season.
Shiba Ramen responds to the hot weather with cold ramen
Despite today’s rain, it has actually been uncharacteristically warm (take that, Donald Trump’s firm belief that climate change isn’t real!). The Emeryville Market’s Shiba Ramen announced they would be serving up cold ramen (in addition to their regular menu) while the weather stays warm. Cooling down with noodles is just the way we like it.
Maven's Monday Night Pop-Up Series Continues
Food and drinks go together like…food and drinks, and Maven (598 Haight) knows this better than anyone. That’s why they’re continuing their Monday night pop-up series, this time hosting Livermore’s The Last Word for the month of June. We’re especially excited about trying the steak frites with chimichurri.
