Eating this twice a day could ruin your expense account
Matt Smith of SFoodie's sister blog The Snitch reported today that New Jersey-based Institute of Management and Administration reckoned San Francisco the priciest city in the nation for business travelers to eat in, eclipsing even Manhattan. Here's Smith:

According to the report, a San Francisco breakfast of two eggs with bacon, toast, orange juice and coffee costs more than $18; lunch of a sandwich, slice of pie, and soda cost more than $25; and dinner of steak, soup, wine, pie, and coffee cost more than $76.

As Smith points out, just escaping the ka-ching-ka-ching comforts of the Fairmont and strolling to Sears Fine Food on Powell could shave something like eight bucks off that two-egg breakfast. But the thing that leaves us scratching our heads is all that pie -- a slice for lunch and a slice for dinner. Something tells us that, besides having expense-account management issues, the researcher for the Institute of Management and Administration is a total fatty.
