My husband and I will be in San Francisco for 3 nights over 4th of July weekend (Sat-Tues). We have been to SF before and have eaten at Chez Panisse, The Slanted Door, and various places in the Ferry Building. We won't have a rental car so we'll either have to take cabs or public transportation if we go to restaurants which are not close to our hotel, which is near Union Square. We have come up with a preliminary list but definitely open to suggestions. We are more interested in casual/interesting foods and don't really want any blow-out meals (Quince, Coi, etc.). We'd also like to try a few bars for pre- or after-dinner drinks. Suggestions are much appreciated!
Saturday - we'll arrive early afternoon, and head to the Ferry Building to get some snacks. Dinner - I'm thinking Incanto - is it worth the trip? We'll probably want to go somewhere before or after dinner for drinks - maybe Water Bar or Clock Bar in the Westin.
Sunday - We're planning to go to Sausalito at some point during the day. I do want to try Bi-Rite ice cream, Dynamo Donuts, and Tartine - since they are all in the Mission District, I figured it might be good to try them all at the same time. Would it be possible to either go to Sausalito in the morning, then go to the Mission District for a later lunch? Or better to hit the Mission in the a.m. and then go to Sausalito, perhaps taking some pastries there for an afternoon snack? In the evening, we'll watch the fireworks at the wharf. Dinner - possibly Tony's PIzza Napoletana. We love pizza and have heard this is good, plus its not too far away.
Monday - We are going to visit the Disney Museum in the Presidio. For lunch, I am interested in Nopalito but again it is kind of far away. I also want to try Bar Crudo, maybe for dinner.
