NYC hounds looking for feedback on our list
Hi guys. We are spending 5 nts in SF. Concierge at our hotel told us to look into the following restaurants and he will start booking. We are pretty low-key for the most part (no French Laundry) and love every kind of cuisine. Would like one or 2 nice dinners (Chex Panisse?) but prefer mostly great local places. What do you think of these and also, what is your fave sit-down mexican? Can be a hole in the wall, just great food. Thanks so much.
+ range - excellent choice
quince - great place - relatively formal
+ nopa - great neighborhood spot
gary danko - i'm kinda over it
piperade - great food, service can be nutty
conduit - haven't been
slanted door - great views and good food in a noisy room
luella - prety good neighborhood spot
bong su - big and just OK
burma superstar - excellent, but usually a wait
+chez panisse - i'd never tell someone to not go there
sit down mexican isn't a strong suit in SF...for taquerias for lunch, try la taqueria and taqueria san jose in the mission district.
my choices noted by "+" and i'd throw in the following to the mix:
+ bar crudo
