Returning to SF: New American Favorites?

the scribbler | Jul 9, 2009 05:27 AM

I'm a former SF 'hound returning to the city next month for a wedding. While I love my new city (Philadelphia), I'm excited to be returning home. I have two free dinners while I'm in town. One of them is a lock for Delfina (it, more than any other place, made me fall in love with food), but the other one is open. I'm hoping for new American food (if that's not too vague). Reading reviews on the board, I've more-or-less narrowed the choices to:


To give you a sense of my preferences, some of my favorites while I lived here were Delfina, A16, Quince, Oliveto, Chez Panisse, Zuni, etc. I've got Chinese and Mexican covered elsewhere on the trip, and I can do fancy dining in NYC, so I'm hoping for fresh American/SF food.

Conditional on those parameters, which of the above would you recommend? Feel free to suggest others as well.

Thanks in advance!
