Suggestions wanted for 4 day honeymoon trip - first time in SF

stilicious | Jan 19, 201106:07 AM


We will be in San Francisco in May arriving Sunday leaving Thursday. We do not have an exact itinerary of what we will be doing but it will involve all the typical tourist things that people like to do on their first trip to SF. We are staying at the Huntington Hotel on Nob Hill. We would like some suggestions of places to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner preferably near the main sites so that we can plan eating and seeing together.

We don't have a budget in mind but were thinking reasonably priced/cheap and cheerful for the most part and 1 top notch meal, for which I had been thinking Gary Danko. We would also like recommendations for cocktail bars that are different and memorable.

We are visiting SF last thing on our roadtrip so will have been to LA, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Yosemite. We also want to try a high end dining experience in LA and Las Vegas hence wanting to eat "normally" for the rest of the meals

We live in Barcelona so Spanish tapas style food doesn't really appeal as we have a pretty good selection of that on the doorstep. A slight issue is that I love fine dining and my fiance loves big hug portions. I absolutely love a good burger while my fiance loves steak and big slabs of meat. We also like mexican, japanese (I'm more western sushi rolls, he is more traditional japanese baked eels etc...), french, thai, chinese - (we've never been for dim sum and would like to try, any suggestions for dim sum virgins and what we should order?), we also like seafood.

I know San Francisco has a lot of great Italians but I eat lunch every day at a small Italian restaurant so would prefer some different cuisine types

We really enjoyed the food in Australia and New Zealand, lots of fresh produce, traditional dishes with a modern twist and decent portion sizes.
I hope I have given enough info...!

thank you
