Upcoming trip to SF - Northern Californian Girl

Katipoo | Mar 12, 200112:19 PM

Well, here I am, just found this FANTASTIC SITE! Have been par-using it. Here's my situation. First of all, I'm not into the "tourist-eeeee thing", and am really looking for those great places to "chow-down". Coming in on Sunday, and will be staying at the Sheraton SF Airport Hotel in Burlingame, definately need someplace to go for dinner around there. Then Monday night, I've rented a small yacht near Pier 39 to stay the night on, and want another great place for dinner. So, far I'm coming up with the CRAB HOUSE for our Crab dinner night out, but for some strange reason, I can't believe, the best in town, is RIGHT ON PIER 39???? I would also LOVE to find a great, home-town cooking (remember those days?) restaurant, that possibly serves, fried chicken, mashed potatoes and mom used to make. The OTHER place I'm looking for, is an outstanding french bakery, that not only makes the BEST NAPOLIANS, but also serves lunch as well. You know, like awesome gourmet sandwiches on thick homeade buttermilk bread, and actually carries 20 different cheeses....(if you dared to ask for american, they'd kick you out...). Hopefully they put peach chutney on a freshly baked sliced turkey breast sandwich? ( I know, I ask the world..but..) Let's see, oh, the last thing, thinking about going to North Beach, which I've read has a lot of places, any recommendations? All help is very much appreciated. Arriving in SF on Sunday, March 18, live in Sacramento, so if you need any help with this area, please send me email.
