Hi all. A friend and I are doing a mileage run to San Francisco from Chicago and we're thinking about making the whole trip revolve around food. I land at 1:00 p.m. Saturday and depart at 2:15 Sunday. I'll be in the city by 2ish on Saturday and have to leave the city around noon on Sunday.
We're thinking about doing a late lunch, small plate pre-dinner snacks, dinner, drinks and late night ramen or something. Then an early lunch/brunch or Dim Sum so we can depart the city around noon.
I love Incanto and eat there almost every trip to SF. I recently ate at Aziza and while good, wasn't blown away.
While I'd live to try Swan Oyster, I have no intention of waiting in that massive line. We've been thinking about doing lunch at Hogs & Rocks, but aren't sure about anything else yet. We're not looking at spending $200 each on dinner and really don't want some huge 20 course degustation. We like comfortable places with great food. If you've been to Chicago The Bristol, Vera, and Yusho are among our favorites.
For Ramen (something sadly lacking in Chicago) we are thinking about Katana-Ya.
We're staying on Nob Hill and will have a car but have decided to cab it around due to drinking.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
