Narrowing Down Some Options

thirdcoastgal | Jun 27, 2011 11:04 AM

Hello all -- we're a family of four from Chicago (with two-teenage girls, both adventurous diners) returning to SF after a great vacation last year, highlighted by fabulous food. We hit Zuni, Delfina, Swan's Oyster Bar, Yang Sing, the Ferry Market (pork sandwiches, IIRC, which were incredible), and the Front Porch, among other places (we'll be going back to Dynamo Donuts for sure). We're returning in mid-July and I'm trying to find the best spots that we missed, and am having trouble narrowing down some others that get good mentions on this board. I made a reservation at Foreign Cinema as that sounds intriguing but am also considering:

Rose Pistola
La Ciccia
La Folie
L'osteria del forno

Or is there someplace else entirely we should try? I'd like to get out to Kingdom of Dumpling as we are big dumpling fans and didn't get there last time -- is that still worthwhile? We're in town for 8 nights and staying at Ghiradelli Square (we have a kitchen there so we can bring our leftovers home!). I tried to book at Flour + Water but couldn't. We're also going to be spending several days at a house we're renting in Point Reyes if anyone has suggestions there (though I suspect we'll mostly be cooking up there.)

Of course we have great food here in Chicago but your city is amazing. We're really looking forward to seeing it again, and eating as much as we can!
