Lunch suggestions in Financial District

  • k

I'm a new SoCal hound and will be in SF for a total of about 20 hours.

I have a hearing at the bankruptcy court at Battery and Pine. Any good suggestions for lunch around the area? I'll have a reasonable per diem, so someplace that will get me out around $20 or so.

I was thinking dim sum, but I can get pretty good dimsum in Monterey Park.

Anything that shouldn't be missed in that area?

    Any of the places on Belden Alley.

    Tadich Grill would be pushing a $20 budget.

    Walk over to the Ferry Building and graze.

    1. Mixt, the hip and yummy salad place on Sansome between Bush and Pine, one block away from you. But go early or late because the lines can be pretty serious.

        Mixt only has tables for maybe a tenth of the people who like up for lunch to go. It's a healthy fast-food alternative for Financial District cubicle dwellers but not much of a destination for an out-of-town visitor.

          That's the funny thing; most people take their salads to go. There is usually a long line of people waiting to order but I've never seen all of the tables full.

      2. Has anyone tried "Mixt Greens" at 120 Sansome yet? According to Zagat, some of the folks involved have backgrounds including Gramercy Tavern and Gary Danko. They even use "corn-based compostable boxes" for take-out.

          Several reports shortly after opening (try a search), but we could use an update.
