Alas, simply need restaurant recommendations and insight.

So, this is probably the most common and boring type of post, but here goes:

I'm visiting San Francisco for the first time at the end of the month and pretty much have the places that I'm interested in checking out already lined up, but I was just wondering, from locals, if they are indeed worth spending my limited dinning time in the city on. The contenders are: Zuni Cafe, A16, Boulevard, NOPA, Jardiniere.

Any other suggestions are welcome. Being a New Yorker, I'm all too aware of how some restaurants can simply be tourist traps, so wadda ya think?

Also, every wine list I see rather conspicuously displays their corkage fee. It seems strange to me as restaurants in New York seem to discourage corkage. Is it more acceptable to bring a (special) bottle along in the San Francisco restaurant world?
