Zagat has announced the results of its survey of the best restaurants in San Francisco this year.
Greek eatery Kokkari Estiatorio took home first-place honours in the food category this year, dethroning Gary Danko for the first time in half a decade.
While the list does feature many fine dining establishments, several pizzerias, bakeries, and comfort-food diners also made the list.
Food ratings are out of 30 on the Zagat scale.
