Help me tweak upcoming week-long tour: SF and peninsula

Will have group of 5 in two weeks to celebrate daughter's Stanford PhD. Dined many times over last 12 years in the area. Here's what we've come up with; help me refine if you would. Note: I've done a fair amount of due diligence already from your extensive info. We're willing to pay up somewhat but not infinitely, and midday is always a nice way to try the fancy places.

No special needs: daughter no longer vegetarian.

Meals impromptu: In-N- Out, La Tacqueria, tacos in Redwoods City per El Taquistador (MexCal #5 on list already a favorite of daughter), Swan Oyster Depot (need a sub - Locals Corner?), pizza Delfina, Nopalito, Rosamunde on Mission (never been to either location), Schroeders (what besides potato pancakes?) and Windy's list of Asian/Chinese in Tenderloin (Bodega Bistro, Pagolac, Lers Ros, Thai House Express, Burmese Kitchen - are these sit down or take out?)

Mission places that sound intriguing (Delfina burnout reclamation for me): Poc Chuc, Local Mission, Commonwealth, Mission Beach Cafe.

Mission latino to try for first time: Tacqueria SF, La Santeneca, Tacqueria Cancun, Chile Lindo.

Destination and reserved already - should be highlight of trip: La Ciccia

Haven't been lately and never had the chicken: Zuni

Other SF ideas: Range, Bar Tartine, Fifth Floor, Dosa on Fillmore

Also haven't been lately and lunch is affordable: Chez Panisse Cafe

Penninsula destinations: Evvia, Village Pub Woodside

Thanks for any helpers. It gets a bit confusing on this Board when critics of a place are picking at the authenticity of a restaurant, but others like it. We just like good food - don't care if it's exactly like the old country.
