I'm coming to SF for a conference with several colleagues (up to 10 people) next week, and I was looking for fun/hip/great food & drinks places to suggest. Ideally, it'd be nice if we didn't need reservations (particularly because it may be that we don't all go to every dinner). We'll be there Wed-Sun, so looking for Wed, Thurs, Fri & Sat. dinner spots. We'll be staying in the area around the convention center, but obviously would be willing to go elsewhere for better food options/get away from the crowded area.
I've only been to SF once a few years ago, and enjoyed Slanted Door & Colibri, but it was just with 2 of us, so I'm curious about places that would accommodate more people. Cuisine could be pretty much anything: Mexican, Italian/good pizza (is Flour + Water still fun?), Chinese/Vietnamese/pan-Asian/fusion/Sushi, etc.
Thanks so much in advance!
