The Resy Guide to the Women-Owned Restaurants of the San Francisco Bay Area

By

No other region in the country has a legacy like the Bay Area when it comes to women-led restaurants. From Alice Waters and Crystal Wahpepah to Pim Techamuanvivit and Brenda Buenviaje, so many of our best restaurants have always taken their lead from women.

Now is the time to support — and celebrate — them. Once again, Resy is celebrating the Women of Food, and in turn, we are honoring and highlighting the women-owned restaurants of San Francisco and the East Bay that are available to book on Resy. See the full collection below, or use the Women of Food filter.
