My wife and I have always enjoyed taking about four plus hours to wander North Beach and dine at five or six different spots when we come to town. It has never been a problem before as we both love Italian food but she has been vegan (Engine 2 w/no oils, salt, etc.) for the past seven months and it is treating her so well that I know that this is a permanent change. Can anyone give me some help on what spots might serve our needs for my Italian craving and her vegatable cravings. We are both getting up there and have been coming to the city since the seventies usually at least once per year. I was born there but raised in Santa Barbara as was she. It has been three years since we have been able to visit so not up to speed on what might be some of the newer places.
