Hi fellow Chowhounders! My mother and I (NYC self proclaimed foodies) are heading to SF the 3rd week of Feb, and then going down to Monterey/Carmel to do some central coast wine tasting for 3 nights...we haven't been to SF since 2004 and I know the restaurant scene has changed since then. We were looking for some advice on really good food in downtown SF (we are staying in the Grand Hyatt on Stockton down the block from Macy's)...preferably Mexican, Californian, Dim Sum, Mediterranean or New American...doesn't have to be celebrity chef or the number 1 hot spot (unless that is really what is the best right now)...also doesn't have to be super expensive (we aren't interested in dropping $300 for a dinner for 2). We do have a car if necessary. Also if anyone has any ideas of things to do/see and great eats or wineries in Monterey/Carmel or going down Highway 1 I'd love to get some input on that too...Thank you so much in advance for your help!
