San Fran - eating out with my dog?
Hi all. I'm very excited to visit San Fran in August. I will have my small dog with me and would love to know where I can eat well with his company...on South Beach (where I live) it's easy to eat out with a dog. Small dogs are permitted anywhere there's outdoor seating. Is this true in San Fran? Can you please recommend great breakfast/brunch and lunch places that allow dogs? I would especially love places with organic/local ingredient emphasis, although that's not a strict requirement. THANKS!!
Keep in mind that weather in San Francisco is not always conducive to eating outside. Our daytime high in the summer averages the mid-to-high 60s, with night temps (around dinner time) probably 5-10 degrees cooler.
Many places that do outdoor dining do have heat lamps, however.
Here are a couple of links to articles about outdoor dining (many of these are not in SF, so read carefully). http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/mbauer/detail?entry_id=40463
PS - Driving 30-60 minutes north or east of the city proper will raise daytime temperatures 20 degrees or more!
