Coming from DC, Northern Virginia and will be spending Sunday May 17 through middle of the day May 20 in SF, before heading to Australia for our honeymoon. I have been looking at threads for advice on where to eat and have some ideas, but wanted your advice. We will have dinner Sunday night, full days of eating Monday and Tuesday and probably just breakfast on Wedneseday.
I would like unique and fun SF experiences as this is my first time. They don't all have to be high end or romantic, but for dinners I would like someplace we could make reservations or that don't have ridiculous waits as Fiance gets impatient with that, but all ranges would be fine, I just want the best unique food I can't get in DC/MD/VA. We enjoy all types of cuisine, and will eat about anything. We will probably do some normal tourist things and lots of just perusing neighborhoods as I have never been. We are staying at the Fairmont.
Northern Virginia has very good Vietnamese, as we have one of the larger populations in the country, so we can get that here, but the food critic here said really good things about the Slanted Door, and I saw pretty good posts on here, thoughts?
Also we love seafood and really would like some fresh seafood, especially dungenese crab, something we don't get fresh on the East Coast.
I saw posts about good Mexican food what would be specific recommendations? We have very limited good Mexican in DC.
Also what would be good high end honeymoon appropriate eating? I would rather not go with La Folie as we have excellent French restaurants here. Gary Danko looked good as it had interesting game options would it be a good choice? If not what else?
And to top it all off, what are some great spots for well made interesting cocktails? Or some fun lounges or bars that have good cocktails?
DC area has very good: Middle Eastern, Soul Food, French Food, Thai Food, Heavier American Food, Meat and Potato types of places, Burgers and Pizza
DC area has poor: Chinese Food, Casual Italian, Mexican Food (Our Indian food is pretty good)
Thank you 1. for reading my long post 2. for taking the time to respond
