I'll be visiting San Fran for the first time with a friend for the Winter Fancy Food Show in early January. My friend has visited before but she wasn't able to enjoy the fine cuisine due to the shortness of the trip. I love food, but what I like even more is creativity. I'm pursing a career as a film director so being creative is what I do for a living. I like going to the exclusive places to eat, the places where the tourist don't go, the whole in the wall spots, the gems where the locals become regulars instantly. Bay Area, I'm asking for the diamond in the rough spots that you guys can't get enough of. I'll (I'm not sure about her as of yet) be working on a medium budget ($35-$65) so if it's good, exclusive, and in the San Fran, Oakland, or Berkeley area I want to know about it Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Dessert. Please and Thanks in Advance.
