Most Tempting Tastes in SF

C Magazine asked 6 of California’s leading women in the world of food and entertaining for their picks of the best places to eat. For San Francisco they selected Allison Speer (whom they photographed with her dog, Cedar) — and as we trust her taste more than most, SFluxe will set out to try everything she listed. Here are some of her favorite places (pick up C Magazine, with Christina Ricci on the cover, for more. And by the way, Christina looks fabulous!)
