I'll be in the Bay Area in a few weeks and I'd love some tips on new or unique food/dining experiences or trends you're excited about. I'm coming from Minneapolis, which has a surprisingly interesting, diverse food scene, so there's a lot I can get at home, but here's are a few things I'm pretty sure I can't. Let me know what else I should check out...
The amazing ferry building
Blue Bottle's siphon (I've had Philz and Ritual)
Tomales Bay oyster picnic
Uncommon ethnic cuisine (I've been to Burma Superstar)
(I'm staying with friends in the Mission so city spots are best, though I may do a day trip to Oakland, Palo Alto, or Marin.)
