hello SF chowhounds,

i am a bit reluctant to admit that i am a newyorker as i read the previous threads lambasting the food and restaurant culture here in new york but i will admit that many of the points were accurate. however, since i was a poor grad student, poor office worker (notice a theme here) and am now a poor aspiring chef i do tend to rely on these message boards for insight into good, "affordable" food and tend to ignore all the comments about how the service has gone down at jean georges (as i can't afford to eat there, or daniel for that matter). with that said, i will be in SF for four days and would like to hit a wide variety of restaurants. essentially, i want to try stuff that i can't get anywhere else in places found nowhere but SF. money is tight so i don't want to spend more than 20-25 bucks person. incidentally, my partner in this adventure is not the most adventurous, so things like placentas and goat brain wouldn't be the best suggestions (although come to think of it, you can get goat brain at any pakistani place these days...). i hope that you guys can help me out. input would be much appreciated. thanks.
