I moved from SF to LA when I started working. In SF I was a poor college student making no $$ and now I am making the big bucks. That being said I have eaten at all of the stellar places in los angeles and now know my way around food quite well (ethnic and haute). After reading countless reviews it seems that SF is supposedly far better than LA (which I can believe). I wanted to get some suggestions about where to eat in SF.
I went to crappy places like Scoma, Bacar, Tommy's on Geary for mexican, circolo, etc..
Dont list chez panisse, manresa, french laundry, or any other far flung place. One great thing about SF is that it is centralized, so I want to keep it in the city.
I hear good stuff about Frascati and Aziza. If you can give me places that are just as good, preferably BETTER, I would be indebted.
It is time for me to return to SF a more educated foodie. I have already eaten at the popular places, tourist magnats and such. I want the best of the best in haute or european cuisine. No asian, indian, or other ethnic unless its haute ethnic.
