Eat Drink SF is around the corner, marking the end of August, as well as its 10th anniversary. What started as a small festival by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association grew to be a mega-event drawing tourist from all over the country and having locals line up for small bites and mini cocktails aplenty. With over 115 participating restaurants, Eat Drink SF is perfect for discovering some new names and revisiting some old favorites.

The festival is offering a variety of events and programs on each day, and attractions including a spirits store by Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant, where wines sampled at the festival can be purchased by the bottle, a Willy Wonka-inspired Golden Ticket Giveaway, a chef Q&A with Tu David Phu, Rogelio Garcia, and Melissa Perfit, plus a secret activation by the Museum of Ice Cream.

Among the participating restaurants this year, visitors will find newcomers Sorrel and Eight Tables, Chinatown’s discreet restaurant above China Live, brunch bites from the not-yet-open ALX Gastropub, as well as International Smoke, Vive la Tarte’s hard-to-get tacros and mini-pitas by the newly opened Oren’s Hummus. Chefs Dominique Crenn and Chef Stuart Brioza of State Bird Provisions, joined by Mayor London Breed, headline the festival’s popular chef demos.
