I am planning a trip to San Fran for the summer. Let's be honest: all I really care about is food. Which is the best neighborhood to stay in? I would like to be close to a good mix of inexpensive, ethnic, and also somewhat nicer restaurants and snack places.
Specific hotel recommendations would be appreciated, too (although that is off the focus of this board). I don't want to stay in a youth hostel, but can't afford the Ritz either.
Thanks in advance for any input.
