Phx Hound 1st time to SF

Dapuma | Oct 11, 2012 09:59 AM

Going to be in SF for the first time, and only have 3 days to get in as much as possible

First night will probably go for a nice dinner then the rest of the time kind of figure it out as we go

for dinner deciding between Benu / Gary Danko / Alt Crenn - leaning toward Benu however they only have a late booking 930-10 and wondered how long the tasting menu is and if i go that late are they going to "rush" service etc to get out of there for the evening sooner, i wouldn't think so at a 2 star but human nature and all - any advice appreciated there for those that have been to a later dinner at Benu

Then Fisherman's Wharf (i know it is touristy but have to go) is there any place in there that is a must try ?

Will def be going to PPQ for some Vietnamese Crabs - we will be there a big before the dungaress crab season opens, so hopefully they will have good crabs then

Going to hit up Smugglers Cove for sure 1 early evening, is there anything near there that is good to soak up some of the rum drinks afterwards...doesn't need to be fancy, something seafood focused would be good

What else is good for a first time visitor? Perhaps one of the 3 Chinese places mentioned in the other threads, there is not a lot of good Chinese in Phx - Is there one place that does Peking Duck the best? We both love duck

Is Heaven's Dog / Slanted Door worth the price? Also can you just walk in there or do you need ressies?
