Best Wine List2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »
101 Cyril Magnin St., San Francisco, CA 94102
As you can tell from my other selections, I drink plenty of non-American wines. Yet one of my pet peeves is the disconnect between the locavore movement in food here and the way wine lists are compiled. In Paris you drink French wines. In Rome you drink Italian wines, In San Francisco, you drink French and Italian (and Swiss and Uruguayan) wines. What's wrong with this picture? San Francisco is surrounded by California wine country, yet to my knowledge only two restaurants here have all-American lists: One Market (which is a little pricey), and First Crush, which amazingly has the only major all-California list in the city. It's an enthusiastic list that serves both people seeking natural wines and tourists seeking cult Cabernets. Themed by-the-glass flights make it a great place to learn about small producers, no matter what style of wine you like. To quote the prophet Jello Biafra, California über alles.
