san francisco foodie wannabe...

yoyo and tubbs | Jan 23, 2007 07:59 AM

My friend and I are coming to San Francisco in early February. Not familiar with the San Francisco food scene we would like some recommendations.

-We tried to make a reservation at Chez Panisse (downstairs) and were unsuccessful and received a fair amount of attitude. We were looking forward to trying their food...Is the cafe worth trying? Lunch or Dinner?

- We were interested in trying the gems the locals know about and are not too interested in the tourist route. Anything and everything from budget to gourmet delicacies...

- We also looked up the 'slow food' restaurants and found a few that seemed quite good - but it is hard to tell online from websites alone.

Looking forward to your recommendations!
