Not about food, but for this trip about how I'd like to limit my choices.
I'll be in SFrancisco for 4 days starting Wednesday and will be staying at the Hilton Financial on Kearny. I'll probably be eating alone and prefer walking distance choices.
Eating at a restaurant for me is as much about the whole experience as it is the food. I'd prefer some ethnic restaurants of which New Orleans has a shortage. This would be Greek, Central/Eastern European and some Middle Eastern or African. Unfortunately, too often these type restaurants are not located in central business districts.
I would try Chinese or Thai if one of them had a dish(es) that one would not normally find.
Since I am eating alone, a plus which might balance the type of food would be a place with an open kitchen. A nearby table or eating bar with a kitchen view is always of interest.
If you think there is a special "San Francisco Food" spot in the area I'd be glad to hear about it.
Thanks for your guidance.
