Good Eats and MNF Near Intercontinental Nob Hill

Hi all, I'm headed out to SF tomorrow morning for a business trip and am really not too familiar with the local dining scene. I'm staying at the Intercontinental Nob Hill (1 California St.) and could use some dinner advice. I love trying out local "celebrity" chefs when I get a chance but ideally would like a place with a bar and a TV that I could hunker down at to watch Monday Night Football while still enjoying great food. Budget is around $75 all-inclusive.

Thanks much for any advice!

  1. Sadly, I think that great food with a television isn't a combination well-known in San Francisco - especially from the "celebrity" chef status.

    Which is your preference? Great food or a sports bar where you can watch the game? Because you have within walking distance some fabulous restaurants (Barbacco, Perbacco, Tadich Grill, Wexeler's), but I can't think of a single place with great food that has a television...

    Maybe others will chime in.

        Barbacco actually does have TVs -- it's probably the best food-with-tv in the city. Be sure to tell them when they seat you that you want to watch the game, though.

      2. The bar at Lers Ros in Hayes Valley has TVs which was a great boon during the Giants' playoff run. So some of the best Thai food in San Francisco has a TV at some seats.
