I'm sure SF residents get fed up of the same posts from tourists wanting recomendations for dining suggestions. I remember that some time ago there was a tip sheet produced but I don't seem to be able to find an up to date version. I'm visiting California as part of my honeymoon vacation for four days in early October and would really value some recommendations - our hotel is close to Union Square and suggestions both within walking distance and further afield would be welcome. Despite it being our honeymoon suggestions need not be overly romantic - We'd really rather get a taste of the real SF. Bar and Club suggestions would be appreciated also (were both just 40 but funky although we might be a little past cutting edge hip-hop etc)
I'm also curious of which areas locals feel are safe to wander round at night and which you would recommend to avoid - UK guidebooks say to aviod the Tenderloin, Western Addition, Filmore and SOMA (at night) but I can't help thinking that they are a little over protective.
Any responses would really be appreciated and would help make our honeymoon really special
