When traveling my husband and I enjoy appetizer hopping - stopping at several places for drinks and appetizers at the bar, instead of spending all our time and money on one dinner. We get a taste of several restaurants (and often good recommendations from bartenders for other places to try.)
We're coming to San Francisco this weekend and are seeking restaurants w/ great food and a friendly bar. Several in the same general area would be good, so we can walk between them. We're staying near Union Square, so recs in that area are great, but we'd welcome recs for restaurant clusters in other parts of the city as well.
And the "bar" doesn't have to be large as long as we can order from the appetizer menu while sitting there. We've stopped in twice at Jeanty at Jack's in earlier visits and had wonderful experiences ordering food and cocktails at their small bar (six chairs?). Very friendly service, fabulous food.
Thanks in advance!
