Remember the guy who says he’s eaten at every Chinese restaurant in the city? Well, now we have a guy on Yelp who’s attempting to eat at every restaurant in S.F., which at his last count was 4,271 — this is, after all, the city with the most restaurants per capita in the U.S. As the Chron reports today, tucked at the bottom of the Inside Scoop print column, Jason B. has covered a lot of ground since becoming a Yelp member in ‘06, having hit about 2,000 already (although of his 2,037 reviews on the site, not all are of restaurants, so we’re not clear on the exact count).
We’ve reached out to him to discuss the journey but haven’t yet heard back. It seems like a Sisyphean task, crossing restaurants off the list only to see some of them close a year or two later, and more spring up in their place. We wish the man good luck — especially in the less sanitary corners of town — and a swift metabolism. [Chron]
