NY foodie in San Francisco needs advice!

Tida | Aug 4, 199904:30 PM     7

I've just moved from Manhattan to San Francisco and would appreciate any advice, help, suggestions as to where to find a few things....In addition to being a chowhound, I also love to cook. Any advice about where to get fresh produce or where to find a good butcher and seafood store- geography is not a limitation. I'll go anywhere for quality ingredients. So far, I've been getting to know my immediate environs of San Franciso and have been to the Farmers' Market, to Whole Foods, Falletti's, Bryan's, and to 2 Chinese markets in Richmond. Any other suggestions would be great.

Also, I'm looking for an excellent patisserie. In NY, I lived around the block from Bonte and Payard and I need to find a good dacquoise.

Is there any kind of guide to food in San Francisco? Ed Levine published a guide "New York Eats" and I wonder if there's a San Francisco version? Anyone know?

Much thanks for any advice.
