We'll be visiting the Bay area next week and would love it if we could get some reccomendations. My significant other is a chef in NY so we are always looking for good places to try. Mainly places that the locals love and not super trendy spots. I would be happy to help out anyone coming to the Big Apple.
We already have reservations at Chez Panisse and will probably hit Bouchon while in Napa.
I'm looking for the best pizza, Italian, French Bistro, Bakery (Tartine?), taqueria in the Mission District, Dim Sum, etc...Or anything really interesting and original. I already can't wait to check out the Ferry Bldg. I hope it's not too mall-like.
