Best SF chowhound neighborhood?

We would greatly appreciate help from you experts!

My wife, baby (1 yr) and I are going to SF for the first time. We will be on foot and want to stay in a safe area, with great walking range site-seeing, and most important, great cheap-eats area.

To give some of you a better idea of what atmosphere we love, our favorite trip is the Denman Street / Stanley Park neighborhood in Vancouver Canada for all these same reasons!

We are considering staying in 3 different neighborhoods but don't know which is best for this type of trip:

1) Union Square neighborhood (around were Powell and Stockton cross Sutter and Bush). Seems very central but maybe too much of a business/financial area??

2) North of Chinatown (were Columbus and Broadway cross). It doesn't seem too dense for a mainly foot trip???

3) Fisherman's Wharf (were Powell and Beach cross). I understand it may be too touristy???
