FiDi on Sunday

willtryanythingonce Oct 4, 2012 01:43 PM

I come to SF frequently for work, always arriving on a Sunday and staying in the Financial District. It's a ghost town. Plenty of places to eat during the week, but most restaurants have no Sunday hours, and the ones that do (Kokkari) are only for dinner and I've eaten at them frequently enough to be bored and want to see what else is out there.

So, where should i have lunch in that area? I'm not married to staying in the district proper, and get around on muni/bart just fine, but after a flight in i'm usually beat enough that i don't wanna spend an hour on a bus or light rail, so that maybe means chinatown or north beach?

      Prospect is open for brunch on Sundays.

        Yank Sing, La Mar, Osha Thai, I think all of the restaurants in Ferry Plaza, most of the places on Belden.

        Tadich is closed Sundays.

          I am pretty sure Tadich Grill is open on Sundays. You are right though. I sometimes pass thru on Saturdays and it is deserted. The only place I see open on Market and the 1st few blocks south are Jack in the Box and Wendy's. There should be quite a few places up on Polk St which is only a mile or so from Montgomery.

            No, I've been to (and liked) Tadich, but it's definitely not open on Sundays. I'll wander up Polk, thx for the suggestion.

            You're right about the ghost town. Eerily quiet. You might try Cotogna, they are open for lunch Sundays. Or stroll down to the Ferry building, lots of choices there.

              Cotogna is open for lunch everyday except Sundays due to special supper menu.

              If OP doesn't mind dining alone for dim sum, Yank Sing Rincon Center is a great option.
