Besides being one of the world’s great sailing meccas, the Bay Area is also a world-renowned food and beverage destination. Napa Valley has set the standard, but the food culture that surrounds the entire Bay is unbeatable. And what’s San Francisco Bay but a valley that’s filled up with seawater? If you’re a ‘slow food type’, what could be more natural than a five-knot food-and-wine tour sailing San Francisco ‘Valley’?
These next two weeks are an especially good time for a slow-food cruise. Both San Francisco and Oakland are promoting their ‘restaurant weeks’ in an attempt to bust your New Year’s resolutions and get you back out on the eating circuit. Oakland Restaurant Week is January 11-21 (sorry we’re a little late with the ‘heads up’) and San Francisco Restaurant Week is January 22-31. Plus, sailing San Francisco Valley is much better than driving to Napa Valley.
To help you navigate the Bay’s food scene, we’ve recently updated our 100% accurate, comprehensive, unimpeachable, infallible list of all restaurants within three blocks of a public dock, marina or yacht club. You can check out the list here. If you feel that we missed some spots or have any suggestions, please email us here.
Addition: Hey, we learned something new already. Laraine Salmon wrote to say it’s also Alameda Restaurant Week January 12-21.
