I haven't spent much time in San Francisco since I graduated from San Francisco State University in 1995, but I just booked tickets for my wife and I to spend the weekend there to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. Here are a couple questions for the Bay Area readers:
1) Two of my favorite places to eat for cheap were El Balazo on Haight for the mole burrito, and a nameless sushi place about one block south of Market Street on Church Street, on the western side of the street (I must have gone there twenty times over four years, and never found out what the name of the place was... we called it No-Name Sushi). Are either of these places still around, and if so, how's the food?
2) Now that I'm older, and have a little more spending cash than in my college days (when Top Ramen was one of my staple foods), I can afford to take my wife out for a nice dinner on Saturday night. Anyone have any suggestions for a nice restaurant that I could get a reservation for in two weeks on a Saturday night? It doesn't have to have Four Stars, but as long as it's on the nicer side.
3) Any popular food trends in San Francisco I should check out? Or odd/interesting.
4) When I took my trip to NY a few months back, I tracked down the only Belgian French Fry shop in the city. Any place in San Francisco that I can go to feed my french fry habit?
