Suggestions for meals near the convention center

Will be coming into town for a convention in a couple of weeks and would like suggestions on places not too far from the convention center - a radius extending as far as the Ferry Building is OK.

I am most interested in Asian, particularly sushi - have been to the Slanted Door several times and liked it, but would like to try something different. I may have more time for lunch than dinner given convention events.

Thanks in advance from a Boston Chowhound!

Slanted Door
Ferry Slip, San Francisco, CA 94111

  1. If the event is being held at the Moscone Center, you should start by going up to the upper right-hand corner of this page and do a search for Moscone. You will find there are already several threads here for you to review. Here is one:

    Since you are not far from Union Square (another spot common for people visiting SF) you might want to do a search for Union Sqaure as well.

    1. Besides the pointers at commonly recommended threads, you might ask about the types of joints you like, and whether you enjoy alcohol. Heaven's Dog is another Charles Phan restaurant, but it's good for nosh & a mixed drink; I'd send you somewhere else if you want just food or wine. There's a long, older thread about Tu Lan, but you have to like a *real* greasy spoon. If you like a burger-at-the-bar-with-live-music-and-hipsters, then you'd go to the Hotel Utah.
