We'll be in SF for 4 days and staying in the Cow Hollow area. We have 1 pseudo vegetarian (who eats fish) and all of us are adventurous eater. What are your recommendations? Thanks!

    A16 has my favorite Neapolitan-style pizza in SF, but whether you should go there really depends if you're comign from a place where you can get that type of stuff or not

      Check out Netti's crabshack. It's bright, airy, walkable from your area, and has some of the best seafood in the City. They have a whole crab dinner (choose roasted or steamed, sides, etc) for around $30. Great wines and cocktails too.

        Isa and Bistro Aix, both on Steiner between Lombard and Chestnut are both excellent. Terzo on Steiner near Union is also a favorite of ours. For Contemporary Vietnamese, Three Seasons is on the same block as Isa and Bistro Aix. Mezes, near A16 on Chestnut is a small but very good Greek restaurant. Near Betelnut, which someone else recommends, is Netties Crab Shack and a very new French bistro, Des Amis--haven't eaten there yet but have reservations in a couple of weeks--it is owned and backed by people with other great restaurants so I expect it will be good. They put a ton of money into it.

          definitely go to Betelnut for Asian food - a neighborhood favorite for years and with good reason.

            I like A16. It's a bit of a scene but that's part of the charm. The food is solid as are the wines. A reservation is a good idea.
