Some cities say they are concerned about health, but only San Francisco puts its money (and tofu) where its mouth is. For example, in 2010, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted to ban toys in Happy Meals, deciding that the trinkets lured kids into an unhealthy diet.
This kind of progressive (some might argue radical) approach to diet has been a signature mark of California cuisine ever since Chez Panise opened years ago in Berkeley. Like the ancient Greeks, San Franciscans believe that food is medicine. If you share that belief, our list will get you to the healthiest restaurants in San Francisco.
If you want to go vegan, you can't go wrong with Greens, which also offers a stunning view of San Francisco Bay. If you want a taste of the latest "foodie" trends, try out Source, which offers one of the more experimental and daring menus in the city.
Whatever restaurant you choose, rest assured that your body will thank you for the meal. All of the restaurants offer locally sustained and organic fare, so the planet will owe you one, too. And since you'll be eating meat, fish, fruits and vegetables grown and raised right in the Bay Area, you'll be taking a healthy bite out of California itself. Bon appetite!
