NOPA, SEBO and one of Beretta, Flour & Water, A16

Hi, long-time reader, first time poster... the posters here write such wonderful, thoughtful commentary; it's a real treat reading it. coming from nyc at the end of the year with two friends to check out SF for three nights, so i've started putting together a potential list of spots.

1) For dinner, thinking NOPA, SEBO, and one of Beretta, Flour & Water, or A16. Which of the 3 italians would you pick? We're young 30s looking for great food and a great vibe. Last time I was in SF, I was at NOPA and loved the ambiance. Two of us don't eat meat.

2) We''ll be in town on a Sunday, Monday and Wednesday, so I was hoping I could ask for help in selecting the best night for each spot? I guess SEBO has to be Monday or Wednesday, since we want to try the sushi

3) We've planned for two lunches. Boulettes Larder and Fish. I was at Fish ages ago and remember enjoying it, but was wondering if this board thought Fish was a good call (esp. during December) or if we should be spending our time somewhere else like Bar Jules or Zuni.

4) On my last trip, I became obsessed with Blue Bottle. Is Ritual Coffee worth a special visit? Also, I have to be in North Beach one of the afternoons. Is there a high caliber coffee spot around there?

I know these aren't very exciting questions, but I really appreciate the help. Much, much appreciated!
