Whole Foods Market • San Francisco (http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/soma/)

399 4th Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
415.618.0050 fax
Store Hours: 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. everyday.

You forgot the best by far place only a block from the Convention Center - The Whole Foods Grocery store that has an extensive selection of excellent vegetarian and organic meat choices at a number of cooked food bars and where they custom make sandwiches for you and a TON of other excellent food possibilities.

Just a block southeast of Folsom ST or 2 blocks southeast of Howard on 4th ST (back side of the convention center) on the left before you reach Harrison ST. I am completely miffed why this was not included and why there is not a VEGETARIAN section in the list.

WOW! That's a neat blog. Read the other entries. Some of them are pretty funny. :D

(Though there is one stupid post about Inquisitor's affiliate links that I completely disagree with.)

By all means, head for the Metreon. Just head for that little park behind the Moscone Center. (North or South, can't remember)
The sushi place in there is outstanding.
They have a good soup place, too, if you're into that.

For a decent steak dinner (served cafeteria-style) at a good price:

Tad's Steakhouse
120 Powell Street

Breakfasts are also very good.

It's walking distance from Moscone Center.

Tu Lan on 6th Street (at Market) is the best.

It's cheap, absolutely delicious Vietnamese food with an incredibly vibrant ambiance, totally casual, friendly, hole-in-the-wall but truly excellent, and in walking distance from the Moscone center.

Any recommendations for seafood? Fisherman's Wharf? I'm looking for someplace with a lot of atmosphere and good food!

My favorite seafood in the city (great food for a decent price) is called Pesce - mostly small plates, but it rocks. Make sure to get reservations in advance, though you can sit at the bar.

It's a small, intimate place that shows off the great food in the city.



Edit - here's the 2007 list of the top 100 places in the Bay area - click on the SF section if you want to look for particular cuisines.


A few of my favorite recommendations around the Haight:

Asqew - In both Haight and Market/Castro. Reasonably priced grilled high-end kebobs

NOPA - new place that's open very late (1 am), excellent food

Naan n' Chutney - my old standby Paskistani/Indian restaurant on lower Haight at Fillmore. There are 4 Indian places at this corner, and this one always seemed good for the price. Four people can stuff themselves for $10 each. (I'd also recommend Dosa down in the Mission for a higher end meal)

Coming from the East Coast of the US I have a mandatory In-N-Out pilgrimage every time I'm in California, so much better than anything we have over here, though I know many Californians don't see the draw we Easterners seem to have to it. I'm not a big fast food eater, but for some reason I love the burgers there.

Excellent place I had seafood at was the Pier Market on Pier 39.

Scoma's on fisherman's wharf for seafood - some of the best in the country. They don't do reservations, so get there early because the wait can be long.

John's Grill, 63 Ellis Street. Great food.

This .zip is a great listing, but unfortunately it's not readable on my iPhone. Any chance of getting an iPhone readable version so we can read it while we're at the expo, and not have to either convert the many pages, or print them out?
