Hello! My boyfriend and I are visiting SF in early August. We will be there Wednesday -Tuesday for a music festival. I don't really have an itinerary per se, but I like to have a list of vetted restaurants we can keep on hand and choose by wherever we happen to be. The festival is near Golden Gate Park - we haven't booked accommodations yet but I imagine it will be somewhere near there. However, recommendations from all areas are welcome!
As for our particular taste and budget, food is our biggest incentive to visit new places. We are very adventurous and love trying new things. Our budget is mid-range and we do like to drink while we eat. I've been searching the boards and have a list of places from here and from friends in the area and a couple that I really loved and want to revisit during our stay. If there are any that are skippable or replaceable, please let me know!
One thing I also didn't see perusing the boards was many recommendations for good coffee houses. As you will see Blue Bottle and Phil'z are already on my list!
