First Visit to San Francisco

Bahamian Megs Sep 15, 2010 06:32 PM

Hi everyone! =) I am planning a trip with my Mum, Sister and Boyfriend to San Francisco from December 27th till January 2nd. This will be our first time visiting and I was wondering if anyone could reccomend some good places to eat. Love all types of food but want to stay away from touristy places and try to keep the vibe more local. Thank you to everyone that responds.

      Always a good place to start:

        Quite frankly, three months in advance is way too early to be planning -- this is a town that has a fairly substantial turn around in chefs and restaurants and what might be good (and open!) today, may not be around by the end of December. We have our stalwarts, but even those can change on a dime...

        Best to check back after Thanksgiving for a more timely response.
