An App To Ease SF’s Cinderella Syndrome

on Friday, Jul. 20th

You have to struggle to find the downside to life in the Bay Area, to be sure,  but host a New Yorker who’s in town for a visit and it will soon (around 11 p.m.) become painfully obvious that the dearth of after-hours eating in San Francisco is a major point of embarrassment, especially in a city famed for its food culture.

A new app by Tablehopper founder Marcia Gagliarda leads you to nearly 100 options, which, with the exception of some greasy-spoon diners, will be worthy of a snooty visitor…even one who insists on ticking off the ways in which SF doesn’t measure up to the Big Apple.

The app is part of the Know What network of apps inside which tastemakers like our friends at BoingBoing recommend local gems, including some that are, miraculously, still off the grid.

The Tablehopper app will cost you $2.99, but it might be worth the brownie points you’ll win for your fair city.
