I'll be visiting SF in 2 weeks for 10 days from NYC and would love to get some recommendations for great restaurant picks - especially ones with great food and low cost. I am not averse to spending for the experience if it'll be worth it, however. ;)
I will be going to French Laundry to see if the homage and praise is all true (very excited), and plan on visiting Delfina and Swan Oyster Depot (at recommendation of a friend). I have heard good things about Boulevard and Fringale... these are all kind of pricey places though (apart from Swan) so I would really appreciate some more moderately priced picks.
Also would love to get some great sushi/sashimi recommendations.
