I'll be visiting SF for the first time in October, and I'm wondering what restaurants I should visit. I know SF has a ton of trendy, innovative restaurants, but that's not necessarily what I'm going for. While I would like to go to maybe one nice restaurant while I'm out there, I am looking for something a bit more unusual.
Not sure exactly how I would describe it, but if I were taking a visitor around NYC, places such as Katz's, Di Fara, Russ & Daughters, Shake Shack, etc. would be the focus, rather than a Babbo or EMP. Not sure if there is a SF equivalent to a Village Voice or NY Mag's Cheap Eats that might have some good reading on the subject.
Sorry, I'm sure there are at least a few threads along these lines, but I'm not really positive what I'm looking for exactly.
