Downtown Dining Distress

  • 4

The fetching Mrs Grub & I are making an all-too-rare visit to the city from LA as an anniversary treat to ourselves. We’re staying at the Four Seasons & need recommendations in SoMa or a short cab ride away. I’ve searched the board & admit to feeling a bit confused & a lot out of touch w the SF dining scene. We need 5 days worth of lunches & dinners. All price ranges are ok … we’re all about the food & not about the scene.

Tadich Grill & Fleur de Lys are on our radar, but not much beyond that. Pls help Grubs in distress.

    Are you going to the Saturday morning Ferry Plaza Farmers market?

    1. re: rworange

      Esposa's choice & of course I am.

    2. Perbacco and Barbacco are great, same block as Tadich.

      Personally I prefer Sam's Grill to Tadich, very similar food.

      Amber India's around the corner from Four Seasons, relatively expensive for Indian food but very high quality.

      B44, Chez Papa Resto, 54 Mint, Zero Zero, Marlowe ...

      1. The recent thread on COI vs Benu vs Crenn vs Saison should tell (most) regarding the high end tasting scene. I understand that thread is varied, but saison did very well.
