My partner and I are heading to San Francisco for a few days in June, and I'm starting to put together our dining itinerary. I have an open slot for dinner on Wednesday, and we agree that we want to try a cuisine that's either not readily available where we live on the central coast or one we've never had before. Looking for your recs for a great sit-down place, not counter service or take-away, reasonably priced (not looking for terribly upscale, super pricey places).
We have easy access to really good Indian, Japanese/sushi, Italian and Thai food. We love Greek, Lebanese/"Middle Eastern", Russian, German, Czech, Spanish and French cuisine (we already have a French place in mind). Love Chinese too, but as native East-coasters, we tend to prefer what we had back home to what we've had out here in Cali). Willing to try pretty much anything else, though not looking for an offal-centric menu.
ETA: Posted a bit too quickly and forgot to add: We are staying at Villa Florence, between upper downtown area and lower Nob Hill, and not looking to go outside of San Francisco, so nothing in Berkeley or Oakland, please. We'll have a car, but would prefer to take the bus/walk/take a cab, so parking isn't an issue.
Thanks for your input!
