Foodies traveling to SF with non-adventurous eaters - recs?
Very adventurous and enthusiastic eaters going to SF area for about 4-5 days soon with a group of somewhat picky eaters. Aside from Chinatown (which is a must in our book), any recommendations for restaurants where the simple palates will be satisfied and we foodies can still enjoy the delights that SF has to offer?
Mostly dinner ideas needed but others are welcome. We will be staying in Nob Hill but will have a car, so driving isn't a problem at all. We have a group of 8 adults and 1 very well-behaved toddler who has dined in many a fine establishment. Price isn't a major concern, but we will probably stay away from the overly exorbitant restaurants because of the child. We anticipate splurging on at least one dinner while there.
Capp's Corner (old school Italian)
Zuni Cafe (high quality Cal cuisine...just have the non-adve types order the roasted chicken)
Restaurant Lulu (like Zuni, more tables)
1658 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
1600 Powell St, San Francisco, CA 94133
If you're staying in the Nob Hill area check out Vintecello an Italian fare of old school menu very safe when it comes to non adventurous food, there is the Nob Hill cafe right around the corner from the Grace cathedrale that serves an inexpensive option, there is also Rue Saint Jacques, a little French restaurant that is my favorite they have an early bird every day, also a very safe choice, if you're going to be there on the week end try to go to the ferry building farmer's Market on Saturday morning
