New Survey Results: Best Restaurants South of SFBy Meesha Halm | October 10, 2013 By Meesha Halm | October 10, 2013
650 and 408, it’s your time. As we continue to shine the spotlight on some of the biggest winners in the newly released 2014 San Francisco Bay Area Restaurant Guide, this week we focus on the best dining options South of San Francisco. Whether you’re looking for a special occasion spot in Silicon Valley to wine and dine investors, planning a trip to the Monterey Peninsula or simply hungering for the best ramen or sandwich shops in San Mateo county, we've got you covered.
This year was a particularly exciting year for the South Bay, as a slew of high-profile restaurateurs from San Francisco and beyond continue to open outposts in the area, hoping to tap into the gourmet tastes, disposable income and proximity of VC companies and other businesses. In Palo Alto alone, we saw new branches of Asian Box, The Melt, Tacolicious and Umami Burger; a Burlingame branch of Pizzeria Delfina is on the way, and even the sleepy coastside hugging Highway 1 saw an influx of new arrivals such as Bantam, Puerto 27, La Balena Cucina and Big Sur Roadhouse. Cruise through our slideshow below for the biggest winners in the South and stay tuned for more Survey coverage from around the Bay Area throughout the month.
