Local Spots Make Bon Appetit Magazine’s “America’s Favorite Neighborhood Restaurants”

Jona Denz-Hamilton

Bon Appetit Magazine asked 80 “interesting people”, athletes, writers, fashion folks, actors, etc., where they liked to go for for a delicious culinary treat. Their picks have become part of an article called, “America’s Favorite Neighborhood Restaurants.”  It’s no surprise that thirteen of the picks are in California. Four of them are in the Bay Area–definitely worth a try.
