    There once was a man from Nantucket.
    Who kept all his dough in a bucket
    He had a daughter named Nan
    She ran away with a man
    And as for the bucket
    Nan tucket.
    Please let use know how much do you want to spend out of your bucket, what sort for restaurants you like and how far you will travel and how.

      Right. Also, it might be helpful to tell us what restaurants you tried last time and whether you liked them, were lukewarm about them, etc.

        Too many yrs ago to recall my favorites. I do like Tarantino's on the Warf.
        No a wine guy so budget is not a problem.
        I'll be staying in Union Square. Looking forward to the new Muni System.
        Thanks

        If you like outstanding Italian go to Perbacco. Wexler's has outstanding country food. Danko's does not get much love but I love it. Delfina is Mmmm.....good. Have a great visit.

          Any bucket list would probably be so large you'd need a bucket to carry it around in. I'd advise searching back through this board. An hour's searching should give you dozens to hundreds of options. Without more information on what exactly you're looking for, it's more or less impossible to give you any reasonable advice.

          Incidentally, I'm pretty sure Tarantino's isn't going to show up on anyone's bucket list. It's not bad for a tourist spot, but probably wouldn't qualify as one of the top hundred restaurants in the city. If you're interested in a classic SF seafood restaurant, Taditch Grill is a good choice.

            Thanks Littleman for your ideas. They all look great. One more favor. Who's your pick for Chinatown Dim Sum.

              Start with the Michelin list.
