SAN FRANCISCO — A look at the Golden Gate Bridge and a visit to the sea lions who live at the pier are tops on the list for most visitors to San Francisco. But the local culinary scene is also a big draw, and the San Francisco Convention & Visitors Bureau has launched a new micro-Web site for foodies at

Visitors to the site can search for restaurants by price, type of cuisine and neighborhood, but there are also more unique listings such as restaurants that offer al fresco dining (including the Waterfront Restaurant at Pier 7), inspiring views (such as the Cliff House, 1090 Point Lobos Ave.) and dining adventures (like Asia SF, 201 Ninth St., described as featuring “Cal-Asian cuisine” along with performances by “gender illusionists”). The Drink section links to wineries, tasting rooms, brew pubs and tap rooms. The Taste Experiences section highlights a variety of attractions, including Local Tastes of the City Tours at and Ghirardelli Square, named for the famed chocolatier.

The site also provides a history of San Francisco’s “food firsts,” along with chef profiles and Foodie 411, a weekly insider’s blog by Marcia “the tablehopper” Gagliardi.
