NY'er Craves Crabs And An Italian Dinner In SF.

Rickey | May 11, 200503:01 PM

I’ll be spending an extended weekend in Marin (Mill Valley) in early June, with a couple of daytrips to Napa, to pick up some pre-ordered wine.

For Saturday, I intend to have breakfast/brunch the SF Ferry Farmer’s Market. Thank you for any suggestion regarding where I may have a good breakfast/brunch at.

For dinner, I am craving dungenees crabs. I realize that it may not be in season, but the teeny, wimpy crabs that we get here in NYC are no-match for even the out-of-season sweet and fleshy dungenees. I’ve been to Thanh Long before and was pleased with the roasted crab. Does anybody know of a better place anywhere in the city?

Finally, as I would like to break the wine-country-themed meals that have been pre-arranged for me(Martini House, Bistro Jeanty and Willi’s in Sonoma), I’d like to sample an Italian dinner in the city. Having lurked on this board, I am choosing among the popular ones that have been posted about - A16, Quince and Incanto (I have been to, and liked, Delfina). Would a single diner be OK in any or one of these restaurants?

Thank you.
