In San Francisco, Mission Chinese Food chef Danny Bowien found an outlet for his creative spirit—an open invitation to explore interests that didn’t always have a place in his Oklahoma hometown. In the city's international dining rooms he tested his boundaries as an eater and a cook; in its coastal landscape, he discovered a powerful muse; in its maker culture he saw opportunity and motivation. Here, Bowien navigates San Francisco’s weird, wild, try-anything energy the most nimble way he knows how: in the saddle of his bicycle. S.Pellegrino® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water introduces you to a world of unique taste experiences


Bowien’s picks reveal the range of San Francisco, from an iconic American bakery that rivals anything you’d find in Paris, to the edge-of-the-earth sensation of Sutro Baths.
