We'll be in the city for 2 nights/3 days over labor day weekend. It's our fifth wedding anniversary so we wanted a special dinner. I have made reservations at Michael Mina after deciding that La Folie & Fleur de Lys were to heavy for me this time of year. However, I'm wondering if the dining room at the Ritz is really better than MM - I usually never trust "the nice" hotel restaurants even though i understand that this is a unique case.
Then we have reservations for lunch at Fog City Diner on Saturday because it's nostalgic and good. However, I am open to suggestions.
I'm curious about bar tartine for breakfast because I can't refuse a great pain au chocolat, or would you suggest th farmer's market (& is that the one in Embarcadero)?
So here's the last question: we have dinner reservations for sat night at Zuni, however I on't eat chicken (but hubby does) - should we eat at Quince instead? I've heard rave reviews about Zuni and have always wanted to try it, but I have to say, the pasta at quince looks pretty appetizing.
Don't have anything set up for Sunday yet , we leave around 3 so we would really only have time for brunch & it seems everyone likes Foreign Cinema. There may be a chance that we can stay through Monday. If we can would you suggest we do both Zuni & Quince or something else.
