TASTE News Service March 22, 2016 - There's no question that San Francisco is one of the culinary capitals of the world. Bon Appetit magazine called it the best food city in the country last August. Now the 2016 James Beard Foundation Award nominations are saluting the formidable talent at eleven of San Francisco's bars and restaurants.

The James Beard Foundation presents its awards annually to the chefs, restaurateurs, journalists and designers who excel on the culinary scene. There's no higher honor for food professionals in America, like the Academy Awards of food.
