Come April I will have 14 friends here. On a Saturday. We plan on going on a boat cruise around the bay and landing back in Fisherman's Wharf area. None of us like chain restaurants, love good food and great drinks.
I've considered slanted door (reviews don't seem to be the best), yank sing (closes to early) and some places in North Beach.
Ultimately everyone will be staying near my place in the Castro/Mission Dolores/Mission. Baretta only provides a limited menu so assume starbelly will be the same way. Incanto goes too far for people and puerto alegre is just not good enough taste wise. Farina is good food but the service lately has been horrendous.
Do you have any great ideas nearby the wharf or in the Castro/Mission area?
Thanks for any recommendations!
