Hillary Versus Bernie: SF Restaurant Edition

What do their dining choices reveal about each candidate?

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are about to battle it out big time in the California primaries next week, so both are spending time in this fine state wooing voters. And since shaking hands and kissing babies can be utterly exhausting, they of course need some fuel. This being San Francisco, the choices were infinite for the Democratic duo. Would Hillary go big somewhere like Boulevard or Coi? Would Bernie keep it real at a SF diner like Eddie's Cafe?

Nope. Turns out the pair is quite hip to the current SF culinary scene and both made extremely respectable — and somewhat surprising — choices. Last night, Clinton headed to Hawaiian hotspot Liholiho Yacht Club, which even a year after opening is hopping every night and tricky to score a reservation at.

Sanders, on the other hand, did not stop to dine, opting instead for a restorative coffee from homegrown coffee brand Sightglass after being grilled by the The Chronicle two weeks ago.

What do these choices reveal about each candidate? We'll leave it up to you to decide.
