My boyfriend and I are coming to San Francisco for a few days in early March. We have 2 full days and 2 nights and are staying at least two of the nights at the Mark Hopkins. We won't have a car and this is my first time in SF (boyfriend hasn't been in 10+ years).
We are looking for breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner recommendations for both days. We're on a budget, the most we'd want to spend on dinner is $20 per person max. We love anything with a good atmosphere, fun crowd, attentive and friendly staff. Love local, hole in the wall places as well. Since we live in Texas, we're staying away from Mexican, and the boyfriend isn't big on Asian. One must have for me is some good mussels (TX has NONE.)
On our short list so far:
Bar Agricole for drinks/apps
Gamine for drinks/apps
Pier 23 Cafe
Nob Hill Cafe
The Beach Chalet
Any feedback you all have on the above would be great, and also any new suggestions!
