We just received the 2011 Zagat Guide this morning from our friendly Fed Ex man, and once again Gary Danko takes top honors, with Zagaters ranking his spoon as the best joint in town. Following Danko's dust, in order, are Boulevard, Slanted Door, French Laundry in Yountville, Cyrus in Healdsburg, Chez Panisse in Berkeley, Zuni Cafe, Kokkari, Chez Panisse Cafe and A16.
Danko also scored number one in the Top Food Overall' and Top Service Overall categories.
And, according to Michael Bauer, "this year surveyors put food trucks and pop-up restaurants into the mix. In fact, the Best Bang for the Buck is the El Tonayense taco truck. It beat out In-N-Out and Saigon Sandwiches."
