Looking for a San Francisco equivalent of a Portland American Dining Restaurant

Hi,

My girlfriend and I ate at Wildwood restaurant in Portland, Oregon a few years back and really enjoyed it. Myself being not to keen on food, cannot seem to figure out what would be a comparatively good restaurant here in San Francisco.

Wildwood specializes in using pacific northwest ingredients locally, but other than that I can only guess that the type of food is "American" food. It doesn't seem to be French, Italian, or any other European type food. The items on their current menu that come closest to what we ate there a few years back are:

PAN ROASTED MUSCOVY DUCK
cauliflower gratin, lacinato kale, roasted plums and gypsy peppers

MESQUITE ROASTED SWEET BRIAR FARMS PORK
creative growers buttercup squash, golden raisins, baby turnips and brown butter harissa

The restaurant is linked here: http://wildwoodrestaurant.com/aboutus...

Here are a list of places I've been recommended both by these boards and by friends... I know most are obviously french.

Cortez, Canteen, Acquerello, Michael Mina, La Folie, Jardiniere, Chapeau, South Park Cafe, Clementine, Fleur De Lys, and Masa

Any help is much appreciated,
