Help Needed - Week in SF w/GF. Would Like To Eat Well Every Day.

we're landing in town in a couple weeks for just over a week. we've been happily googling up a bunch of great looking restaurant options, but i figured asking the CH community would definitely make sense. this reaching out is partly because we have a friendly competition over each other's lists. that is, i want one that's better than hers. ha.

so, thanks in advance. any recommendations would be much appreciated.

  1. How about a few hints like price range, cuisines, your location, transportation etc. Start with this.

    1. re: wolfe

      thanks for he help and sorry for the lack of immediate clarity. *looks sheepish*

      we're staying at the rex, no car, price range isn't really an issue within reason - we're from Bermuda, so cost expectations are disproportionately blown out, y'know?

      far as cuisine goes, i'm not a shellfish eater. beyond that, we're wide open.

      thanks again for the help, it's appreciated.

    2. A lot of good suggestions were made in this recent trip research thread:

      My personal list for a visitor would be Zuni, Canteen, La Ciccia, the Ferry Building Farmer's Market on a Saturday, some sort of Burmese, Vietnamese, Peruvian, and Mexican. Maybe Chinese, too. Once you get a feel for what interests you, we can help you narrow down the list.

      BTW, it's still a good idea to put a dollar amount on what you're willing to spend - you shouldn't go over $80 pp with any of the restaurants I named, and you can eat for $5-20 at most of the ethnic places, but if you're interested in upscale restaurants ($150-200 pp), let us know. To be honest, I don't think upscale is SF's strength, but depending on where you travel and dine, it might be worthwhile.

      Zuni Cafe

      La Ciccia
