a little help updating the classics

johnny | Aug 18, 200203:00 PM

hey to all y'all SF'ers.

i have been visiting every 18-24 months for a few years now and have developed a few regular stops for myself without the big

fear is that i am probably missing the insider stuff. i have searched the archives to some degree, but computer issues (incl. bad connection) prevent a completely thorough search.

am hoping if i list a few of my spots, you guys will pipe up with replacements or confirmations.

misc. information:

+ i am a ny hound who will travel far in search or the goods
+ a rental car is available for my use
+ while value is important it is not crucial in this case

tacos (carnitas & others) - pancho villa 16th & valencia

upscale asian - slanted door

market driven - zuni & chez panisse

italian - delfina

also am in search of:

the dim sum NY'ers complain they never can get in NYC - fresh & handmade. have been reading about this on the board, but would be grateful for a synopsis.

some choices in the cantonese and shanghinese worlds. is the richmond a good location to find these spots.

young up & coming jewel-boxed sized places, maybe couple owned, that are doing small scale handcrafted eats. not unlike the tasing room or patio-dining in manhattan.

the best high ticket spot in SF. is gary danko the place to begin.

opinions of eating lunch at the french laundry. is it worth the $$. what is lunch option a viable one ?

thanks in advance for the help and sorry for the many different facets of the questions.
