Help near Moscone Center [San Francisco]

I prefer a good restaurant experience to the "10 mile sample buffet". I am game for any cuisine. I will happily pay the going rate for great food. Thanks for Benu,

Help near Moscone Center [San Francisco]

This is my first visit to San Francisco. Staying at W for Fancy Food Show, Saturday through Tuesday. I am dining solo and I use a wheelchair. Looking for great food experiences. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Describe your ideal coffee house...

I only referred to Peets as a commercial type coffee house, but one with a heritage. CB&T is definitely more commercial than Peets.

Is there anyting redeemable about the "Peet's" type of coffee house? What percentage is atmosphere and what percentage is the coffee/food etc?

I take it that the atmosphere of the place is first on your list. If the conveniences (soft seating, free wi-fi, electrical outlets) were available in a more "commercial" type location (e.g. Starbucks type place) would you consider that place or is that kind of "antiseptic & uninviting" place to which you were referring? Is it possible to be commercial and not "antiseptic & uninviting"? If so, how?

Yesterday's Times profiled a list of Artisan Specialty Coffee Houses. Whether your taste runs toward Intelligentsia or Starbucks, LA Mill or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, what are the "must haves", "don't bothers" and great new ideas for beverages and food items in the ideal coffee house. If one already exists in your opinion, what is it and where?
