LA to SF: Need some great recs (relatively) accessible from Omni

WHills | Mar 12, 2008 07:55 PM

I rarely go to SF and have spent all my life in L.A. We're staying at the Omni for a weekend. Need recs for good restaurants...

Yes, I know this is a tourist spot, but am looking for a good seafood place for fresh seafood. Live crab and live spot prawns (not sure if you have them up in SF) a big plus. Would rather go to a nice stand to dive into the seafood than an upscale restaurant.

Am currently looking at Michael Mina, One Market, or Cortez. Don't really want to spent too much (no more than $100 per person, $50 even better). Looking for good food. Not too into Italian or French.

SUSHI (preferably in J-Town):
I've heard that SF sushi is not comparable to LA sushi, and I've been spoiled by some pretty good places down here. I'm currently looking at Kiss Seafood. Any thoughts? Go for it, or skip sushi altogether.

Looking for a good authentic Chinese restaurant. Not too into Sichuan or spicy stuff. Cantonese is good. Haven't decided whether I am going for lunch or dinner. I love good hot pot though, especially a good AYCE hot pot place since there are none down here in L.A.

Looking for other suggestions. Prefer something not super pricey, unless it is truly worth the price. I love seafood. No Vietnamese, Thai, or Indian. I could do French or Italian or steak if you have a great suggestion.

Overall, would prefer places that are accessible through public transportation as I have decided not to rent a car and pay ridiculous price for parking. Some easily accessible by using public transportation around the Omni.
