I'll be in San Francisco on business early in April, and i'm looking for some guidance through the maze of highly-recommended and well-reviewed places in the immediate SF area.
My co-workers and i lack nice fat expense accounts, so the more high-end places are out. Mid-priced is fine, though. No picky eaters here, we're all pretty adventurous. We're staying near the Moscone Center -- while we're very (very) happy to grab a cab and hit someplace in a different neighborhood, we're not planning to go, say, all the way to Berkeley for dinner.
So which restaurants can we simply not afford to miss? What are the big favorites with you regular Chowhounds? Which places get a lot of hype but don't deliver? Suggestions, please!
