Forgot to mention that we like dishes that are balanced . We really don't like restaurants that just put a lot of butter, cream, or salt to make it "tasty" to the masses. Richness is fine, as long as that's not the only taste on the plate.
Coming down to SF at the end of May for 4 days and I'm looking for some pretty particular recommendations for the 12-15 meals we plan to eat. I've researched past threads and didn't find exactly what I was looking for. We're coming from Vancouver and want to see how much better SF's food scene is, if it is better at all... ;) Here is our criteria:
- Quality of food (quality of ingredients, technique + execution, well thought out dishes, etc.) is our most important factor; ambiance, service, etc.
We have reservations for AQ (dinner), Incanto (dinner), Bourbon & Branch (drinks), Brenda's French Soul Food (breakfast), and Bar Agricole (drinks) so far (feel free to critique them). Some candidates are Dottie's (breakfast), Marlowe (lunch), Chambers, Caffe Ambrosia, and Plow.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!
