I'm headed up to SF and possibly Napa next Tuesday through Sunday and am looking for some current recs to round out the trip. My girlfriend is a vegetarian, but eats seafood. While in SF, we're staying near the Embarcadero and will have a car.
Places we've liked in the past include Fringale, Yank Sing, China Village (in Albany), Brenda's (for brunch), Canteen (for brunch), and Range.
On Weds night, I have a reservation at Seven Hills for dinner and Thursday is obviously Thanksgiving. We'll most likely go to Yank Sing for lunch one day.
So mainly looking dinner recs for Tuesday (with my parents) and possibly Friday though we will be with friends who are locals who I'm sure will have ideas, as well as lunch places. Less into tasting menus, but not a deal-breaker.
State Bird Provisions - Is this at all doable, or am I looking at a terribly long line that isn't worth it?
Mission Chinese Food - same?
Local Mission Eatery - Like the idea of a more "neighborhood" place, does this fit the bill?
Flour & Water - Too similar to Seven Hills?
A16 - same?
Bar Tartine - better for lunch or for dinner?
Most likely headed to Napa on Saturday, and I have reservations at Ad Hoc for both Saturday night dinner and Sunday brunch, though we won't eat there for both. I've seen that Grace's Table in Napa gets excellent nods from everyone here. Better for dinner or brunch? Thoughts on Redd Wood? In the past we've been to Bistro Jeanty and Redd, and liked both.
Ad Hoc is a favorite for both food and sentimental reasons, so we'll definitely go for one meal.
