Introducing The Saucy Awards® presented by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association -- recognizing the San Francisco Bay Area restaurant & bar community for its culinary excellence. We are the best dining city in America and are a leader in the culinary field both nationally and internationally. These brand new awards are designed to be industry-driven with a nomination process open to those in the restaurant and bar community to nominate for 16 of the 18 different award categories.
However, the diners in the Bay Area are also extremely passionate about food. The People's Choice Award presented by San Francisco Magazine gives food enthusiasts the opportunity to nominate and then vote for their favorite restaurant finalist for The 2016 Saucy Awards®. All restaurants in seven Bay Area counties are eligible (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Sonoma).
