7x7's 2013, 2014, and 2015 Big Eat, 100 things to eat in San Francisco before you die list, in a convenient app format.
From buckwheat waffles with creme fraiche and salmon roe to cinnamon toast, each of the 100 dishes is taste tested and 7x7 approved.

1.3.1 - Fixed a couple bugs that were causing some crashes for some people.
A Few Recommendations
Fun idea for an app and, as inveterate foodies, we'll definitely use it for future food forays (FFF's). But a few improvements would make it a whole lot better.
1. A written description of the featured food would be very helpful for those with dietary restrictions.
2. Access to a full menu for alternative choices would also be good. If one can't eat the featured item, something else might fill the bill. If one item is outstanding, surely other things on the menu are as well.
3. The map is less than helpful when most of the restaurant numbers don't show. A balloon with cutlery is not going to cut it without the restaurant's number.
I want to like it but
I love the idea and I love this list from 7x7 but I've been trying to use it to find good restaurants in the neighborhood I'm in which is pretty complicated with 3 different maps - while there are 3 different lists it would be great to have one map with all dishes so I could see all of them at once.
- Restaurants that are out of business
- location button doesn't work
- biggest thing: dollar signs are for the individual item rather than a restaurant. Nothing like going in to a restaurant expecting ~$10/person only to find we'd be lucky if it was less than $30/person.
Total app fail. Lack of reliability means I can't use this to accurately pick somewhere, thus no purpose, no stars.
