Help with proposed itinerary--looking for casual restos.

My first trip to San Fran 6/17-6/21 for a conference. We’ll be staying in the Fisherman’s Wharf and will have a car. I can comp ½ of all meals, so price really isn’t a factor. That said, we are looking for more casual meals. Something we can wear jeans and a t-shirt/polo. BUT, we still want chow worthy food :-), and prefer reservations. Here’s a preliminary itinerary and would love suggestions!

Wed: Getting in late (our time), so will stay near the hotel. Maybe a quick bite at Bistro Boudin or Blue Mermaid Chowder House. And if too tired, In-N-Out burgers (we don’t have these in the MW)

Thurs: Breakfast at Mama’s or Dotties True Blue or Home Plate.
Then off to Sonoma for the night. We are staying at the Sonoma Inn and have reservations at the Girl and Fig. Still figuring out what wineries etc.

Fri: Probably fall in somewhere for a light breakfast. Maybe a snack and beer at the Russian River Brewing Company. Maybe dinner at Fish in Sausalito on the way home. Or maybe one of the below restaurants, depending on time.

Sat: Lunch at the Ferry Market. Dinner at:
Café Claude?
Which would you choose?

Sun: Brunch reservation at Foreign Cinema.
Flight at 10PM, so maybe light dinner at the San Fran Brewing Co or Thirsty Bear Brewing..

What do you think? Any other recs? Will report back upon return.
