None other than the tablehopper herself will be asking San Francisco’s 2011 James Beard Award winners that most elusive of all dining questions, “What makes a restaurant great?” The award-winning journalists, designers, chefs, and restaurant owners of a destination food city like SF should have some good answers: find out what they are on Wednesday August 3rd at 6:30pm at the ~COMMONWEALTH CLUB~.

Congratulate San Francisco’s winners and learn what makes them successful. The featured panelists are Joshua Aidlin (architect, designer, owner, Aidlin Darling Design; owner and designer, Bar Agricole; James Beard Award, “Outstanding Restaurant Design”), Paolo Lucchesi (author, “The Scoop,” SF Chronicle; James Beard Award, “Best Food Section”), Charles Phan (owner and chef, The Slanted Door; James Beard Award, “Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America Inductees”), Michael Tusk (owner and chef, Quince; James Beard Award, “Best Chef in the Region”), and yours truly Marcia Gagliardi (founder, tablehopper.com and DeepDishing.com; author, The Tablehopper’s Guide to Dining and Drinking in San Francisco) will moderate the panel.

Tickets are online here; $20 standard, $12 members, $7 students (with valid ID). Check-in at 6pm, program starts at 6:30pm, reception at 7:30pm. You’ll also be able to purchase a copy of my book, The Tablehopper’s Guide to Dining and Drinking in San Francisco, during the reception for $15. 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, at 2nd St., San Francisco, 415-597-6700.
