Hello fellow Chows! I am a 29 year old Bostonian who is a major foodie who will be visiting San Francisco for the first time this Sunday, June 29th till Thursday July 3. That means I am going to need 4 nights of fabulous dinner reservations...and that is where you are going to come in.
The only requirement is that the foob be fabulous! I want the 4 places that when i am talking to someone and I tell them where I went, their reaction should be WOW! Price is not an object, but that also does not mean that the meal has to be 150 a person...although I don't really care how much it is. There will be 4-5 people at each dinner. Some restrictions are that we tend to stay away from ethnic food, infusions is ok, but we tend not to do any of the straight out non traditional stuff (except french bistro and italian (not red sauce) is ok)!
Anywhere in the city is fine. I am not familiar with the layout, and I know ya'll have your different neighborhoods, but I will be staying at the Mandarin Oriental so I think I am centrally located?
So here is what I like...if there are and Bostonians in San Francisco I would love to find restaurants similiar to Stella, B&G Oyster, Union and Rocca in the South End....or the original Figs in Charlestown...or places like Mistral, Teatro, 224 Boston, Excelsior and so on. If there are any Chicago folks in San Francisco places like Blackbird, Agre Doux AND ESPECIALLY Table fifty-two!!!!
AND one last thing...not a fan of tasting menus, fixed menus or super pretentious places (So the Darkos and the Minas can be left out)
So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me!!!! I want this to be memorable!! Thanks in advance for all your help!
