Need an Asian restaurant rec!!!

Thanks for all the advice! What about the The House? I'm leaning toward Jai Yun so far…looks delicious!

Not over-the-top like Morimoto. In other words, the focus should be more on the food rather than the scene. Upscale or modest, but definitely authentic. let's say chinese, vietnamese, or burmese. we eat thai and japanese all the time in NY.

My wife and I will be in San Fran for two nights. We're going to Saison the first night and are looking for an Asian restaurant recommendation for the second night. We live in NYC and are a bit disappointed by the Asian food here. Slanted Door looks like too much of a tired, asian-fusion, Morimoto type of place.

Anybody been to Saison? some feedback would be great. Aziza and Canteen were our runner-ups. We had considered places like Nopa, Range, Frances, and Zuni, but while I'm sure they have great food, they don't seem all that unique. Is Aziza (Richmond District) kinda out of the way? We're staying in Nob Hill.

My wife and I are NYC foodies, and she's a chef-in-training. We finally get a much-needed break from our 2 little kids in October for a weeklong trip to SF and Napa. We'll be in SF from a Saturday morning to Monday morning, so we have 2 lunches and 2 dinners we are planning. We don't want any fancy, overpriced meals (Gary Danko-type places). Rather, we want to try some ethnic cuisines and some locally-sourced restaurants that have a fun atmosphere.

I'm new to Chowhound and have read through some of the posts, and here's what I'm considering. We live right next to the Union Square Greenmarket in NYC, and we've heard the market at Ferry Bldg puts it to shame, so we definitely want to check it out. I was thinking Saturday we'd check out the market and then have wine and oysters at Hog Island. For dinner Saturday night, I'm thinking Canteen, Aziza, Zuni, Range, Foreign Cinema, or The House. We want a place that has great food and is a unique experience. A place like Boulevard looks too run-of-the-mill. I may be way off here…

For Sunday lunch, I think trying Burmese food sounds like fun…never had it. Burma Superstar or B Star? Any other unique ethnic lunch spots? For dinner, we could do one on the list I mentioned above, otherwise I'm open to other suggestions.

Much appreciated!!!!
