Good lunch-time eateries in the Financial District??
Any advice for quality, tasty, reasonably-priced restaurants for lunch in the Financial District (specifically, the Embarcadero area)? I'm at a loss. Tired of the Briazz-type places, but many sit-down restaurants take longer than my 1-hour lunch slot! Would love to find a great Japanese or Italian restaurant, though I'm open to all cuisines.
Your feedback is much appreciated!
I'm at One Maritime Plaza and asked almost this same question about two months ago -- people on the board gave me some great suggestions (most of which I haven't managed to try out yet). The link to my original post is below, and that should get you to the responses as well.
Have you tried Kotobuki (433-2868) at Embarcadero 4? I've eaten there a couple of times, and they are not bad. While they are a sit-down rest., they were pretty quick. There is also a to-go sushi place at EC4 as well.
FYI I've worked at Embarcadero 4 for 10 years so I have exploited about every lunch resouce from here to North Beach over the years. I can't imagine how burned out I'd be if I was stuck in some suburban office park.
Here is a list of the city's Japanese restaurants--some of them are located in the Financial District.
If the price is a very important factor, your choice may be limited to Yoshinoya, Japan's large beef bowl chain--many branches are in California.
