    Galette 88 (partly because it's not open for dinner)

      I was in the City last Saturday and ended up eating lunch at the Roli-Roti truck at the Ferry Plaza Market. They are now making much more porchetta so they don't run out (at least by 1:30). Lots of other options. Thought about having crab cakes at the Hayes St. B&G stand.

      Up California, Tadich is nice for lunch and if you're sentimental for a workday financial district rice plate, B&M Mei Sing will fill that bill.

            I had the rabbit ragu last time I was at Farina Pizza. I recommend it. Added appeal of the location is Craftsman & Wolves or Dandelion Chocolate a few doors down.

          If you are north of Market, Chez Fayala is really good both in terms of their buffet and their sandwiches (esp. salmon sandwich). I only do takeout there because it gets kind of noisy inside.
