Every San Franciscan knows that tech and food are king in this city. And the folks chronicling the events in either of those industries are kind of a big deal themselves. Case in point: Eater S.F. editor, Carolyn Alburger, who helms the local edition of the must-read blog, chronicling the Bay Area's boundary-breaking cuisine scene on the daily. Since Alburger has clearly tried pretty much everything out there, we thought it only right to tap the hardworking (and oh-so pretty) lady, and get her hands-down top five favorite spots in the city. Believe us, the results — which range from swanky joints to lowbrow wonders — might surprise you. Bonus: Alburger kept it stylish during our grubbing and boozing date and there's nary a stretchy eating pant in sight. Take notes, and add these venues (and outfit ideas) to your must-hit list. Bon appétit!
