I'll be visiting SF from Seattle over Labor Day weekend, staying at the W (without a car). I've reviewed the SF tipsheet kindly posted by another 'Hound but admit I'm a little overwhelmed by the plethora of recommendations.
Hoping to gather a couple of specific recs from this board for two brunches/lunches and two moderate-to expensive dinners. My traveling companion is a vegetarian who occasionally eats fish and she's joining me from NYC, meaning she's hard to impress.
We're looking for a couple of places that really represent the best of what Northern California has to offer (and if they pour great cocktails, that's a bonus).
Look forward to hearing folks' recommendations!
