Visit to SF from NYC -- Where to Eat?

My husband and I will be traveling to SF next weekend and are looking for suggestions on where to eat. Our hotel is in the Embarcadero, however, we are okay traveling around the city a bit (prefer walking distance or a short cab ride). We consder ourselves to be fairly knowledge about about the food scene in NY, and are looking for lunch and dinner options at places that are unique to San Francisco with great food at a reasonable price.

On our last trip to SF, we went to Chinatown, had sushi near Union Square, ate at Gary Danko, had chowder in a sourdough bowl at Fisherman's Wharf (yes, we knew it was touristy but had to try it) and went for an Ethiopian/Vegetarian meal as an accomodation to some vegetarian friends.

As far as cuisine preferences, we are fairly open, however, would prefer not to have another vegetarian meal.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
