NYC hound here, excited to visit for the weekend, but since i literally found out this morning that i'll be in SF, i'm worried reservations for all the good places are gone! (in NYC reservations are a nightmare)
Any recommendations for last-minute breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner and anything in between would be much appreciated! if there are places that are usually busy but have walk-in tables worth waiting for, we could do that. i normally eat anything and everything (except bugs), although i'm pregnant, so not caring too much about booze/sushi offerings at the moment.
I'll be in town:
Thurs (tomorrow) night - by myself (good solo dining?)
Fri night - husband joining me after my meetings for dinner and after
Sat - all day
Sun - 2pm flight from SFO
Thinking about using Starwood points and staying at the Westin (Market St.) or Le Meridien (Battery St.) - advice as to which to pick that is more food- and other activity-centric?
For food, anything that is better in SF than in NYC/Philly would be perfect. Or just any gems people love. Along with restaurants, would love to check out bakeries, shops, cafes, etc. for snacks. Price is not an issue... we'll pay for great food but don't like paying $$$$ for mediocre food. We love all cuisines, although vegetarian spots are probably less appealing.
I've been yearning dim sum and am guessing SF would have some offerings that rival that of NYC - any suggestions there?
