San Francisco's culinary landscape is an ever-changing one, and this past year was no exception. Scores of restaurants opened and closed, events were thrown, and new chefs stepped into the spotlight. Here are some of the most arresting images SF Weekly and SFoodie captured in 2010.
Jonathan Kauffman opened his review of Benu by musing that his plate (above) looked as if it had been arranged by a fairy, and the arresting images of the restaurant's offerings seem to support this theory.
In Kitchen Ink photographer Joseph Schell captured portraits of some of the city's notable chefs showing off their tattoos. Pictured below are Jamie Lauren, former executive chef at Absinthe, and Universal Cafe chef Rean Taylor.
