Vacation in SF - Recommendations, Please

eecue | Jan 14, 200702:31 AM     33

This year, the wife and I didn't buy one another Christmas presents (apart from a few stocking stuffers) and instead opted to spend 5 nights in San Francisco. We live in Los Angeles and have family in the Bay, including my wife's new niece. I've been saving up my freelance money (my regular paycheck goes towards those darn bill things) for a few months and we've budgeted roughly $300 a day for food.

Our plan is to eat at a nice restaurant every night, and we'd like to do one of each of following (with some possibilities listed for each)

* Italian
-- Perbacco
-- Quince

* French
-- Fleur de Lys
-- Chapeau!
-- Cafe Jaqueline
-- Boulevard

* Steakhouse
-- El Raigon
-- Alfred's
-- Lark Creek

* Seafood
-- no idea

* Something "San Francisco"

We're also interested in lunches, but we don't really have any set categories, but we want to get chinese and sushi and have fond memories as of Sam Wo's and we've heard good things about Brand Ho. Looking through SF chowhound I've read positive reviews for Aziza and Bong Su. We're also open to breakfast recommendations.

If it makes a difference we're staying at Hotel Majestic, where we've stayed a few times before and which we enjoy. I like how it smells like old books and I'm hoping the remodeling didn't destroy the charm.

We're a few hours from SF now (I'm posting this via my Macbook Pro through bluetooth to my Blackberry and on to the EDGE network)

Thanks!

* Random geekiness note, I love the fact that this site runs on Ruby on Rails, I've just recently started developing in RoR for both my 9-5 and several freelance projects. I've only deployed 1 app so far, but man RoR totaly rocks.
