I am visiting from NYC for 5 days in late March with my 12 year old son. We are staying at the W downtown. I've been to San Fran many times, but only once in recent years. My son has never been. We both love good food and are pretty adventurous, but don't want anything too fussy.
Also need places that we can get to by foot/cab/public transportation, as we won't have a car.
The only musts on my list so far are The Slanted Door (one of my faces) and The Ferry Building. Would like a great Chinese meal and any interesting Japanese (not necessarily sushi, which we do very well with in NYC).
Looking for the following recommendations:
Great coffee/casual breakfast near hotel
Only in San Francisco types of places for lunch or dinner
One special meal (but again, not too stuffy)
Thanks in advance for your ideas!
