No Holds Barred - Best Food in SF

woojink | Jun 25, 2007 05:19 PM


My wife and I are flying up to SF this weekend. This is a SUPER rare event for us to have a weekend off with the kids at the grandparents. I have several restaurants in SF that I've been regular at in the past, but am looking for potentially new recommendations. My standbys have been La Folie (I LOVE), Michael Mina (GREAT), Gary Danko (Really Depends), and many more of the higher end establishments.

I haven't been to SF in several months (maybe a year?), so may be a bit behind the curve.

We're staying at the St. Regis, and have no problem cabbing it around if need be.

I'm also bringing several bottles of wine up with me. We are fairly avid wine collectors, so will have some really serious high end wines with us.

So can you please recommend some of the best food possible in SF? Price no object? I'm willing to go $500 per person on food only if need be. A BIG plus would be to have the places open to us bringing some of our own wines. We would only open one or two bottles of our own and definitely buy one from the house. I don't mind paying for corkage up to $75 per bottle (maybe more), so the corkage doesn't have to be cheap, just available. I also can ASSURE the restaurant that the wines I bring will be extraordinary and not currently on their lists.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help, and will definitely post some detailed reviews afterwards.
