Default OT: Restaurants in San Francisco

I am flying into Oakland on Thursday and I have never been in the Bay Area. What do you do there if you are NOT gay?

Also, I have heard they have some good restaurants there. Can anyone tell me the best?

My absolute favorite is Cafe Kati (Katie?) in the Japan Town district. Not steak & potatos. They seem to have some staying power, first there in 92 or so, still there in 00

That sounds good. I love Japanese.

Anybody got any other suggestions? What about things to do?

The Stinking Rose on Columbus...excellent Italian...especially if you like garlic!

The Filmore West is also a neat place to go if they have something going on there...some great rock & roll history.

Thumbs up

..there's a pretty cool spot(just a bar) in Oakland, on the Bay, in Jack London Square..forget the name..but the whole place is tilted/crooked..from a past 'quake...kinda reminds me of Capt.Tony's in Key West..biz cards/license plates on the walls...

ask someone on the street about the "crooked bar"

enjoy!

BTW..there are ferry's that'll take you back and forth from San Fran to Oakland...nice ride at night...

Here goes:
Gary Danko's (French)(you won't be able to get a table sit at bar and enjoy one of the best meals you will have in your life)

Boulevard (American)
Masa's (French)
Slanted Door (Thai)
Ebisu (Best Sushi)
Bistro Jeanty(French)
Yank Sing (Chinese/Dim Sum)
House of Prime Rib (Guess)

Restaurants along Union Street (from Gough street to Fillmore St)
aren't Gay. Usually good sites!

Any Taqueria in the Mission District.

Don't go to Castro Street if you aren't Gay.

And to end the night Irish Coffee at the Buena Vista. Just down the street from Gary Danko.

This should keep you busy...buuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrppppppppp!!

Thanks Magnuman! Where is that Gary Danko's -- Sounds perfect.

O.K. -- So what to do while I'm there? Anyone with a fast boat in need of ballast?
