Coming from Salt Lake City, looking for some culinary experiences in SF. Help?

ksj202 | Jan 6, 2009 09:34 PM

Sorry if I'm repeating frequently asked questions. I'm from SLC and will be coming to SF for 5 nights in February. Salt Lake is pretty scant on exceptional restaurants (only a few come to mind), so I'm looking for some wonderful restaurants (hopefully every night) while I'm in the Bay Area and can't decide between restaurants on some nights. I love all kinds of food and atmospheres. My transportation capabilities are basically limited to transit and cabs. Money is not really a concern.

Here's what I have so far, any suggestions/help would be fantastic:

--Thursday night: I'll be in the Union Square area. I'm deciding between Farallon and Aqua (I've heard Aqua has better food, but Farallon is more atmospheric and more of an experience. Thoughts?)

--Friday Night: I'll be in the Wharf area, and made a reservation for Gary Danko.

--Saturday Night: I'll be in the Berkeley area, and am planning on making reservations at Chez Panisse. (Is this place all hype or is it really that good?)

--Sunday Night: Still in Berkeley area... any ideas? (Preferably close to Cal campus)

--Monday Night: This is really up in the air. It needs to be a place relatively close to a BART station and in San Francisco proper. I'm deciding between Ame and Boulevard. Thoughts?
