SAN FRANCISCOFood & Wine revealed its 2016 Restaurants of the Year, and two Bay Area restaurants made the cut — Cala and Locol, to be specific. Though technically F&W lists the Los Angeles location of Locol, the Oakland one is just the same, so we think it counts. See the full list here. [EaterWire]
