Bon Appetit editor Andrew Knowlton has released his list of the 20 most important restaurants in America (barring "restaurants that have graduated to another level and inhabit a higher plane" like Zuni, Chez Panisse, and The French Laundry). While Momofuku took the top spot, the Bay Area has four spots on the list: The Restaurant at Meadowood (#2), Manresa (#5), Mission Chinese Food (#9), and Swan Oyster Depot (#20). Well done, gang.
