MIA to SFO! Where to dine and drink!

Hello SFO! My husband and I will be heading your way May 17th for a whole week!
So...I am looking for whats in now, what has always been in (staples), when it comes to Dining and Drinking! If you know what is best by day of week even better! We are in our late 20's so not looking to mingle with kids nor college, but with late 20's /30's crowd. We also love fine dining and are also able to roll our sleeves up and chow some good ol' food. We love lounges more than clubs and thats why I believe getting bar/lounge small plates suggestions here is called for! We are already doing two private tours to the wine country so thats all set...when it comes to the city...Please let me know whats best for both to go party it out in style yet get a good:
1. brunch/lunch
2. dinner
3. after dinner experience...
after all, SFO does have great chefs!
Thank you!

    Your thread might not get the response you are looking for. To San Franciscans SFO means the airport and ONLY the airport, not the city.

    You might look through this list and pick out the parts that would be helpful to you

    Visitng SF. Eat like a local not a tourist.

      Great list of lists, rw. I have read the "preamble" and found it helped a lot, but I've bookmarked your list to read more carefully before next trip. Thanks from a tourist who tries to eat like a local :-).
