With hundreds of restaurants to select from, each specializing on some particular dish or some particular mode of preparation, one often becomes bewildered and turns to familiar names on the menu card rather than venture into fields that are new...."

Elsword, affable and expert, gives us a detailed tour of the dining opportunities available to the "Bohemian" who, in his parlance, is at least partially someone who is ready to dine (and cook) with a bit of adventure, with a desire to experience the culturally authentic rather than the standard fare. And where, at this early point in the 20th century, was there a better place to do this than San Francisco?

He discusses the history of certain restaurants and of the certain types of dining that were available in San Francisco, famous local joints and high-brow establishments, includes nuggets of local history, gives information on where the food products are obtained, and even provides guidance on tipping,
