Earlier, I was joking to my editor that we essentially just put out an extra Top 100 list, simply for the hell of it. So here goes: This week, we published three new Top lists, focusing on San Francisco, Marin County and a combination of Peninsula and South Bay restaurants, and we also updated the East Bay list. The total number of restaurant and pop-up write-ups, which include the latest information about outdoor and indoor seating, takeout and delivery, hovered at around 95. And, like the Top 100s of the past, they are laid bare for your commentary on their egregious omissions and/or lack of meatloaf representation.

Meeting reader demand for restaurant recommendations that are actually within reach for folks living throughout the Bay Area is a priority, and these lists are just the first step toward that. Above all else, I aim to be transparent with my work, and am open about the fact that these lists are a reflection of my increased understanding of this region and my own evolution as a restaurant critic. We don’t all emerge fully formed from Brillat-Savarin’s head at birth, you know. But I hope that my investigations serve you, the reader, and bring you closer to some great meals.

Here are some of the most notable (to me) inclusions.
