The bay is always on point for creating food trends:
Good Coffee/espresso (Peet's Coffee)
Local ingredients (Chez Panisse)
American Wine (Napa Valley)
Fine Dining Vegetarian (Greens)
Mai Tais and "tropicalia/Hawaiian Fusion" (Trader Vics)


Considering how small of a metro area the Bay is, it is at the forefront of lots of food trends.

Small of a metro? The Bay Area has over 7.5 million people. It's the 5th or 6th biggest CSA in the country. That's anything but small.

The shocker to me (OK not really), is that not a soul has voted Boston.

Honestly I don't know. It's a big city with money and culture so I'm curious, too. I had the best Pad Thai ever in Boston, but that was 22 years ago.
