How did we curate this list?

Selecting the right restaurant can be really difficult, especially when you would like to find a new one. We analyzed 28808 San Francisco restaurants on Yelp and Google, 3104661 San Francisco restaurant reviews, and 1901 lists and articles – looking closely at what Infatuation, TimeOut and Eater had to say – and applied our boam magic. Yes, we even looked at Infatuation - 28 Great Places To Eat Something Kind Of Healthy, TimeOut - The best Spanish restaurants in San Francisco and Eater - 15 Exciting Spanish Restaurants in San Francisco and the East Bay to pull this list together. If it’s on the list, we’ve checked and verified that the restaurant is still open and will showcase any updated hours and services you need to be aware of. Since boam gets no payment for showing these restaurants, you can trust the restaurants in this list. We don’t recommend restaurants lightly, these 10 are really something special.
