O.K. Michael Bauer's Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants came out last Sunday in the Chronicle Pink Section ---- you can also get the list from www.sfgate.com. Bay-area Chowhounds - what is this list all about??? Yes, some of Bauer's top 100 are great but most suck and what is not included is beyond the beyond. What gives? I would be interested in other's response. Who controls the restaurant scene in the Bay-area? - Michael Bauer? - Give me a break!!!! The list is a joke!! How do we fight back? The only decent food critic in the Bay-area is Derk Richardson of the Bay Guardian --- Derk is also the best jazz and rock n roll critic. My kind of guy - food, jazz, and R n' R.
