San Francisco Itinerary

Ron A. | Feb 20, 2006 01:35 PM

I am traveling to town from Chicago for business and pleasure (wife will be joining me), staying near Union Square. We enjoy relatively upscale places with good food, but aren't looking for anything shockingly trendy or expensive. I've done some research, but am interested in comments on the following choices (in no particular order):

Scala's Bistro
Rue St. Jacques
Ristorante Ideale
L'Osteria Del Forno
Tadich Grill
Michael Mina
Zuni Cafe

As you can see, I primarily am looking at spots close to Union Square, as well as a few in North Beach.

I also thought that Tadich Grill sounded like a good choice for some local flavor (possibly lunch). We went to Scoma's for this reason on our last trip, and were disappointed.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
