Is New York Losing The Restaurant War To The Bay Area?

All of you in SF or NYC just be happy and grateful you don't have to try to eat out anywhere else in America, except New Orleans or LA.Two statements heard on the KQED Forum show’s “Restaurant Roundup” segment, just now, that might trigger a response from you, the restaurant diner:

  • “San Francisco starts the restaurant trends, and New York grows them.”
  • “New York has twice* the population, but San Francisco has the better restaurants.”

* Yes we know that’s not at all true; the NYC metropolitan area has 19 million people; the Bay Area has 4.5 million people.
