First Time to SF

Will be in SF September 24th - 30th and was hoping the SF Chowhounders might give me some must-try places to eat and drink.

Ideally a few spots:

1. A few higher end dining options
2. Local scene/Cheaper
3. Bars/Pubs
4. Unique to Only SF
5. Breweries?

  1. Tadich Grill--it's downtown. Great ambience, great drinks, great fish. No better place to go.

    1. As you might imagine, the question you are asking gets asked (and answered) here regularly. Here is a recent thread:

      Tadich Grill, Sam's Grill & Swan Oyster Depot are 3 "old-school" seafood places. The Saturday morning famers' market at the Ferry Building is a must visit. I believe you can still do a tour & tasting at the Anchor Steam Brewery.

      Otherwise, I would recommend spending 10-15 minutes scrolling down thru the many, many helpful posts that are already here for you to review. You can also use the search feature in the upper right-hand corner of this page for specific topics.
