I'll be taking a trip to SF soon, and am looking for some good chow. I'm staying at a small hotel in Nob Hill (the Nob Hill Lambourne), and would love to hear a few restaurant recommendations within walking distance.
Californian, fusion, pacific rim, Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish, Japanese, Indian, Meditereanean, nouveau American, French or middle eastern preferred. No Italian or Mexican please.
Bonus points if the restaurant is cheap (entrees under $15), has a liquor license, doesn't require reservations, and is comfortable for dining alone (no rude waiters!).
