Good restaurant near USF
How about Fruitful Grounds on Fulton @ Masonic. Great burgers, salads, smoothies. A real college hangout. May be crowded if everyone is moving in today.
Citrus Club is yummy for lunch. HUGE bowls of Asian soups and noodles. Very nice on a cold day. This is on Haight Street two blocks in from Stanyan.
