Hello people. I'm planning on going up next Wednesday and will be there through Saturday evening to visit a friend. It will pretty much be my first time experiencing the area and would love some recommendations on places to try. Mostly cool laid back places, and one REALLY nice dinner. Thanks!

I will definitely be checking out the Ferry Building, and my friend has recommended Delfina, First Crush, Levende Lounge, Circolo and The Slanted Door.....

    luella gets high praise, or frascati kitty-korner

    and zarzuela has come back.

    Ti couz [crepes] gets praise, I felt an eh after my one meal there though.

    Cool and laid back is kinda of an oxymoron in this town. Myth?

      Circolo and Levende Lounge are not great either in my opinion.

        Do a board search for First Crush, reports have generally been unenthusiastic.

        If you want a wine bar with full menu, Cav. Straight wine bar with cheese & charcuterie, WINE Bar & Shop, Hidden Vine, or Hotel Biron.
