I'm going to be going on a trip to San Francisco next week and will be staying along mason st. I've spent VERY little time in the area and really have no idea where to eat and where to go. There are obviously a huge number of restaurants in the area. However, reading the boards, I can't seem to get a feeling as to what are really widely considered to be the GREAT restaurants of San Francisco. What are they?
My family and I are pretty adventurous eaters and are open to most. However, I'm not really looking for anything that is hugely pricey, just some relatively fun places with great food. I'm looking for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In particular, I'd like to know of great asian food and great seafood, although I'm open to and would love to know absolutely everything.
I'll only be on town for about 5 days, so I'm looking for a consensus on a few of the GREATS in the area that you would think we MUST visit before leaving.
