Chow Tips for a New Yorker

Caitlin Wheeler | May 20, 200412:07 PM

I'm bringing my husband, who has never been to SF, my parents, who often go to SF, and myself, who last was in SF about 6 years ago to the Bay Area for a few days in August. We're staying near Union Square, and I'd love suggestions on places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My dad already has his heart set on Jeanty at Jack's (there's an old family connection there, plus my parents liked it when they went recently) but they will be spending a month in Paris just prior to this trip so maybe they'll be amenable to other suggestions. We're going to do Dim Sum, probably at Yank Sing (NY Dim Sum aint all that), and I've already scheduled a trip to the Farmer's Market. I'd love other suggestions on places to try -- high end dinners, mid priced restaurants. We'll eat anything but my parents have a definite preference for more traditional cuisines and settings, so the true holes in the wall will be harder to sell, particularly for dinner. We get fantastic Italian in New York. Is the Zuni Cafe worth trying? Quince? Is clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl still worth getting for a new visitor? Any and all suggestions are more than welcome.
