"Quintessential" San Francisco

Fran | Feb 1, 200605:02 PM     48

I know this comes up a lot, but what would be considered the quintessential San Francisco cuisine. I will be there this coming weekend, staying in Union Square, and would really like to experience the city.

I would probably be looking for places on the more "affordable" side. By this, I mean moderately priced places - a few less expensive and probably maxing at $100 for two (with wine or drinks). A splurge dinner would be no more than $150 with drinks.

I am open to all types of food. My friend is a bit more picky as far as certain ethnic foods, Indian and Thai specifically. He is more of a meat and potatoes/club sandwich type guy, but can and will be a bit more adventuresome.

We travel well, so location is not an issue as long as it is easily accessible via public transportation or cab.

Also, we are going to be there for the Super Bowl - and would be open to any good bar suggestions. (not touristy)

TIA!!!!
