Visiting your fine city(SanFran), Need to narrow the options

Hello fellow gastronauts,

Being you lucky dogs are in THE food mecca west of the Mississippi, the options are a little overwhelming. We are staying in the financial district and would like some recommendation if you would be so kind.

The most important meal of the day. Think hearty, or should I say heart attacky?

Lunch...this may vary depending on which sight we are seeing, so feel free to hit all over the map. We typically plan our trips around food anyways. I'm certain that at least one lunch will take place in Chinatown (Think Andrew Zimmerman). Specific recommendations around there are helpful. One day in Napa, where is good place to have a nice lunch? Which winery has a must taste Bordeaux style blend included in their tasting.

Last but certainly not least, dinner. One night of extravagance only. I'm sure I will here The French Laundry thrown out there. What are some places that parallel? We need one great sushi joint. This doesn't have to be drop a load of money good, it just has to be good...no...great. Finally, and other moderately priced must try places I should know about?

I know it's a long list, but if you have places you just can't stop talking (writing) about please consider this a good place to vent that pent up enthusiasm. Thanks in advance for the help.
