At the last minute, we got a cut-rate deal to stay in the city on the 25th-27th and I have not been up there for years, though I used to be a resident in the 80's.
Looking for best chow deals for Chinatown on Christmas night (not Sam Wo but more like a good set meal) depending on what's open, of course. Where's the good Thai now? I have some ideas about East Bay but am clueless about SF now! Looking for best chow deal on pasta North Beach for Monday. Is there anything worth eating near Castro? Any great brasserie off the N Judah?
What the story with Peninsula dim sum houses? Does SF CH have a restaurant guide?
I would greatly appreciate any input from my quality/bargain hunting diners to the north.
