Go List: San Francisco
Opened in 1995, chef Charles Phan's Slanted Door (now located in the Ferry Building) continues to be one of the toughest reservations in town. Blame it on the appealing Vietnamese menu, knockout views of San Francisco Bay and some of the best cocktails in the city. We loved: Crispy Imperial rolls filled with taro root, cabbage, glass noodles and peanuts.
