The Guardian’s annual Best of the Bay issue hits stands today, and you know, it’s chock-full of highly specific prizes that are just excuses to write up some stuff they like, like Best Place to Yuca It Up (Parada 22), and Best Biggest Bayview Brazilian Burgers (John’s Barbecue). They also honor the slow-cooked egg at Commis, the meatball grinder at Clare’s Deli and Late-Night Eats, and Leopold’s, calling it no-hassle despite there always being an hour-plus wait. Among readers’ poll winners, Best New Restaurant goes to Wayfare Tavern (lest you think all Guardian readers are anti-downtown business), Best Burrito goes to Papalote, and Best Cocktails goes to Smuggler’s Cove.
