Dining in San Francisco

I’m building up a long list of restaurants, dining and the like to go to in SF. When I tell friends where I am, they wax poetic and start telling me where I -have- to go! It’s far less fun to go to such places alone so I look forward to friends buzzing me up and asking to go out with me [hint hint!]

    Here’s my list… I’m happy to go with you to these! Or others!

    The pizzeria at 16/Valencia is called Arinell’s.

    I’m fond of The Stinking Rose, a garlic restaurant in SF. Reservations are a good thing. Ask for a canopy table if it’s dinnertime.

    Pacifica Thai Cuisine does good Thai. It’s in Pacifica, of course ;-) Foooggggggg….

    My favorite Ethiopian places are in Oakland, on Telegraph. One’s Cafe Colucci, on Telegraph near Alcatraz/65th. The other’s Cafe Eritrea d’Afrique, on Telegraph and 40th. The owner of the latter, Zima, tells some fascinating refugee stories.

    Sneha is a favorite Indian place, down in Sunnyvale off of the Lawrence Expressway and Arques. It’s near Fry’s Electronics, which is further down Arques.

    Nawab, in San Mateo, is also a good Indian place.

    La Creperie du Monde, in San Bruno, does crepes real well. Many crepe places don’t.

    Habibi in Fremont does real good mediterranean.

    That’ll get you started!

    I’m sure I’ll think of more…

    Stevie recommends:
    Neptune’s Palace on Pier 39, 2nd floor in San Francisco. Good steak, seafood and sunsets

    The Chart House on Route 1 in Montero… before you get to Half Moon. Have an afternoon at the beach across the street and then eat dinner. There is a cave you can get to during low tide.

    Mings in Palo Alto for Dim Sum. on Route 101 & Oregon Expressway or maybe Easton & Oregon Expressway. He was there for 2 hours and never saw the same type of Dim Sum pass by!
