Mexican food is practically a signature cuisine of San Francisco. Some might argue we have guacamole running through our veins. This Dogpatch neighborhood taqueria has the magic touch. Run by chef Michael Gaines, who worked at the lauded Manresa in Los Gatos, the compact restaurant packs in the flavor on its small menu specializing in tacos and margaritas. Other not-to-miss standouts are the fried chicken torta and the pozole, the likes of which are hard to find elsewhere.
San Francisco and food go together like fog and summertime, and dining out is a sport as beloved as Giants baseball. With thousands of restaurants across the city, choosing where to book a table can be daunting. Here are 12 places to try in 2018 (one for each month), some already pleasing crowds and a few to look out for. True Laurel (753 Alabama St.)The award-winning team behind the ticketed dinner-party restaurant known as Lazy Bear are branching out with this cocktail bar and restaurant.
Let’s start with a little exercise. Raise your hand if you:1. Have had a great meal out2. Love to try new places to eat3. Can recall a memory of a meal shared with a friend or family memberYou probably raised your hand to all three, right? Now raise your hand if you can tell me something about the history of your favorite dish, or an anecdote about your favorite restaurant or a personal story about the chef who owns it? Ah ha—not as many hands. Luckily you’ve stumbled onto the right book.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
