I just found out I'll be in SF soon for three nights while working a convention. I'll be staying at the The Stanford Court at 905 California Street; the conference I'm working is at the nearby Hilton on Ofarrel.
From my initial attempts to orient myself, it looks like I'll be pretty close to Chinatown, about 2 miles NE of Japantown and fairly close to Union Square.
My question is: what neighborhoods/streets should I be looking for in posts to clue me in that a restaurant is reasonable walking distance from my hotel? If you can help me with that info, I promise I'll do some research on my own before asking for restaurant suggestions.
Looking forward to all the good chow!
