First of all, reading this board have saved us from some potentially terrible choices. Thanks to all for your quality input.

We are a family of 6, kids are 14, 13, 7 and 18 months. We all enjoy trying new things, kids are fine with shark, calamari, rattlesnake, alligator, artichokes, all shellfish, spicy, curry, etc. We visit SFO each years and have enjoyed Slanted Door, Gary Danko, Sodini's, Viva Pizza, Gordo's, Pergamino's and The Stinking Rose. We are somewhat adventuresome, but I do not think we are ready for Fois Gras and sweetbreads.

We are arriving in March 2005 for two weeks and have put together the following list.

Chowhounds, please tell us where we've done well and where we need to do something else.

In no particular order:
Buca Giovanni
R & G Lounge
Home Plate
Gourmet Carousel
Universal Cafe
Caffe Macaroni
Luna Park
Pergamino's
Chef Jia's
Little City Antipasta - I think this might be CLOSED
Bay Watch
Need something in Haight-Ashbury for lunch
Park Chow
Slanted Door
Beach Chalet
Matterhorn
Considering Jai Yun also - reviews are across the board

Thanks in advance for all of the suggestions! We will begin making reservations in the next few days.
