Omnipotent SF Chronicle food critic Michael Bauer selected his favorite 11 places to slurp and burp in 2010. They are: Frances, Marlowe, Oenotri, Saison, Prospect, Ippuku, Bar Agricole, Benu, Commonwealth, Plum, and Michael Mina. Those of you left off of his list? Fret not! There were just too many from which to choose! An embarrassment of riches, really. Bauer called 2010 the best year in his 25 years of going from farm to table to toilet for a living. [Chronicle]
