NY'ers visiting San Fran

We are taking a last minute trip to S.F. this coming weekend. We love anything yummy (without too much cheese). We especially love "local flavor" -- white table cloths are not critical. Any suggestions for lunch/brunch and dinner? I found great things about Pacific Cafe. Also made a reservation at Town Hall. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks so much.

  1. Do you have a certain budget in mind? Are you sticking to the city itself, or would you travel outside the city? That'll help narrow down the bazillion options out here.

    BTW, the Town Hall creators opened a new place calle Salt House in the same area. The latter is getting better reports.

      Hi - we are staying at The Four Seasons. We're happy to travel for food. Budget not so important, but again like quality/consistent food rather than fine dining. Thanks for the Salt House tip - will look into it.

        Be sure to report back about where you ate and how you liked it.

    2. Town Hall has gone down hill. Used to be one of my favorite spots, now I avoid it. I'd hit Slanted Door, Ame, Range for 3 different but pretty SFy styles of cooking.

        1. We loved breakfast at Dottie's True Blue Cafe, on Jones. There is usually a wait on the weekends but it's worth it!

          1. Get a mission burrito for lunch. The usual recs are: La Taqueria, El Faralito, Cancun, LaCumbre and Pancho Villa. If I missed any, I'm sure a hardcore burritophile will jump in and set things straight. Do a search however -- most taquerias do one or two things well and the rest are only so-so with the rest.
