Visiting SF this Weekend

Looking for some good places to go and eat. What I am feeling nowadays is sort of clean, summery food: veggies, salads, seafood. Also would love to find a good sushi joint for a nice omakase. Will probably be eating by myself most of the time. Would like this to be a relatively economical adventure. I'm certainly not afraid to go off the beaten track.

      Went to Nopa last night. Aside from the slew of high pitched voices that kept gravitating towards my eardrum, I had a pretty good time. My starter of cucumbers, pickled beets, arugula, feta, and oregano croutons was amazing - perfectly fresh and balanced flavors. Not the same could be said about my pork chop. I am not used to pork that could be labeled as "well marbled." My inner jack sprat found mad issue with the fat content - call me old fashioned but I like my pork chops extra lean and juicy. If I go again, I will stick with the veggies and cheese as they were amazingly fresh and well selected. Any my server/bartender was extra cute - that never hurts ( I think my check said his name was "Matt", fyi)

    2. IMO the best sushi in SF is at Sebo.

          So far, my dining has been really low key: good smoked lamb at rosamunde sausage, mediocre salads (but great mac and cheese - and bizarre smoky iced tea) at Delessio Market & Bakery, and back to Saigon Sandwiches for a meatball bahn mi - the first one that I stumbled upon accidently years ago. I think I will fall through sebo tonight.
