Looking for good dim sum, pizza, take out, bakery and grocery store near Grandview Park, Golden Gate Heights area

Patxi's and Giorgio's are two of my faves that now deliver - Giorgio's is more thin-crust, NY style (but not true NY!), Patxi's is known for their deep dish, but also makes a great thin crust.

Dim Sum - if you are willing to drive, try Ton Kiang, or Good Luck Dim Sum on Clement.

Arizmendi is fantastic for all baked goods, not just their yummy pizzas.

Cal Mart and Bryan's are a short drive away, in Laurel Village, and will have Acme and Grace breads, great meat, fish, etc.

Have fun!

SF city Christmas Eve/Day brunch, lunch, dinner?

Christmas Day = chinese food, for us! Restaurant Taiwan on Clement St is great, Yuet Lee on Stockton/Broadway is also delicious. Both are very affordable, in lively (even on xmas) neighborhoods, and though the atmosphere at Taiwan is a bit nicer, Yuet Lee offers an even more authentic experience. Dim Sum at Ton Kiang is great too!

For brunch, Dottie's True Blue on Jones between Geary & O'Farrell is great, and should be open on Christmas Eve, if not both days.

Unlimited budget: top-notch food with an oceanfront view?

A spot to consider might be Murray Circle at Fort Baker/Cavallo Point Lodge. If you sit on the patio, you can see the bay, the GG bridge, and SF. The food is seasonal, pretty local, and phenomenal (1 Michelin star).

Best afternoon or high tea in SF or Marin?

Looking for somewhere my husband and I might enjoy - not too frilly and lacy, maybe even with a modern twist. Any ideas?
