Thanks to SFGate for letting us know San Francisco is well featured in Esquire’s 100 Restaurants America Can’t Afford to Lose round up, including two classic Chinatown restaurants.

The Esquire editors focused on restaurants that are the essence of America and our communities; they note “We’re raising a toast to these spots around the country—old and new, scruffy and spiffy—because if we lose them, we lose who we are.

Out of 100 restaurants around the country, Esquire chose 6 important San Francisco restaurants including:

They also included Pescadero’s Duarte’s Tavern which has been around since 1894, and offers American country cooking, spiced by the Portuguese roots of the Duarte family. A little further afield, Stockton’s family-owned, Old World Italian deli, Genova Bakery which has been around since 1918, also got a nod. Plus Sacramento’s family-owned Mexican bakery La Esperanza Panaderia rounds out the Northern California inclusions.
