DOWNTOWN—The Chronicle's Syd Kearney shares an easy way to get around downtown that allows you to try some hidden gems: "The five-mile northern extension of Metro's original light rail line, the Red Line, offers foodies a hassle-free way to explore new dining opportunities. The extension opened to the public on Dec. 21. Rebecca Reyna, executive director for the Greater Northside Management District, told the Chronicle last week that visitors will be surprised by the number of good restaurants in the neighborhood."

YEAR IN EATEREater National rounds up some food writers' picks for best drinking of 2013. Food & Wine restaurant editor Kate Krader writes: "Dead Rabbit. The most amazing cocktail bar. Communal punch!! But if we're talking about drinking, I would call out the wine situation in NYC right now. At Charlie Bird, at Estela and at Pearl & Ash, in particular, they have terrific somewhat unconventional wine programs, plus great food." [-EN-]
