Calling Calgarian Chowhounds for some great San Fran recommendations!? [moved from Western Canada board]

Hey All,

Heading to San Francisco for my 30th birthday on March 12th with my Mom and I would love some recommendations from all of you passionate western foodies! I'm going to search out the SF Bay Area board as well, but I would really appreciate your comments for comparison's sake.

It would be great to get as many 'reasonably' priced restaurants suggested as possible (a la Divino, Brava, etc), but a few higher end recommendations would be appreciated as we'll probably have one 'fine-dining' experience.

Thanks in advance, and I will m ake sure to give a full report upon my return!

    1. Not really SF per se, but just an hour away is San Jose and surrounding areas. I just got back there about a month ago for some training my company sent me on. Cupertino is really ethnically diverse, so almost everything I had there was from some culture or the other.. more-so than the "trendy" restaurants you've listed.

      Here's the link:

      Flickr pages is there somewhere too.

      1. You gotta go to Mama's for breakfast... it's near Washington Sq. It's an institution there... AMAZING breakfast... be prepared for line ups though... but the line does move fairly quickly..
