We've got a lot of friends up in San Francisco and each of them represents the pulse of the city in his or her own way. Alanna — the chef, author, photographer, and stylist behind The Bojon Gourmet and Alternative Baker — has an elegant ease to her style that's so San Francisco. To see the city through her eyes, we asked her to share how she'd spend a perfect day in San Fran.

San Francisco is a cultural and culinary mecca — a bit of urban sophistication mixed with Norcal hippie and a touch cultural melting pot. I love that SF is like Paris in that the geography creates little neighborhoods and pockets. So, while you’re in the midst of a city — albeit one that you could walk from end to end in a day — it can feel as though you’re in a small town. This city values quality over quantity so most neighborhoods reject chain stores in favor of independently owned businesees. In SF, it’s hard to go wrong, food-wise, whether you’re at a little hole-in-the-wall taqueria in the Mission, or a Michelin-starred restaurant in SOMA, but here is where I'd go on my perfect day.
