Whether you are local or are seeking a taste of the San Francisco visionary dining scene, five of our favorite 2014 picks include:

La Mar is Peruvian cuisine at its finest. If it is available we recommend trying the Jalea - crispy calamari, shrimp, mussels, clams, yucca, and seasonal fish with salsa criolla, cancha, choclo, tomato, plantains and house made tartar sauce. Pair it with any seasonal cocktail and you have a winning combination. Go ‘Behind the Scenes’ with the Yucatan born bar manager, Joselino Solis, here.

serves up authentic South Indian Cuisine. As mentioned in Parade Magazine’s : 11 Fun Ways to Fall in Love with San Francisco, "Go to Emily and Anjan Mitra’s Dosa for organic South Indian cuisine, particularly the curry and masala dishes; its bar menu boasts imaginative nectar and spice cocktails."

The Cavalier is Anna Weinberg’s newest addition to her critically acclaimed restaurants. We’re a fan of the Lamb Scrumpets with pickled mint and chile and the Wild Mushroom Pie – artichoke, leek, peas, and a savory crust. Zagat calls The Cavalier one of the 25 Most Important Restaurants of 2013.

The Cliff House is a go-to spot for anyone familiar with San Francisco’s fine dining. Eaters enjoy local seafood and fresh produce while taking in stunning ocean views.  Since the 1890s, the Cliff House has served clam chowder, be sure to sample a cup.
