Incanto, Delfina, Michael Mina, Fleur de Lys or...?

I actually loved MM. The evening was wonderful and the dishes incredible - I appreciated the trios. It's a special experience that I would definitely suggest. I don't think you can compare it to Incanto or Delfino though. Everyone in SF loves Delfino and it is quite good and fresh but I think it is a bit over-hyped.

Best Oysters around the bay

Absolutely - Hog Island in the Ferry Building or Bar Crudo on Bush @ Stockton next to the Tunnel Top bar. Or if you feel like a drive, the Coast Cafe has a bbq in Bolians.

Sushi in Marin

Good to know! I'll have to try it out. Thanks.

Fried Chicken in San Francisco

Definitely Powell's Place!

Cafe to practice my French?

Try one of the French bistros on Belden Lane in SF - very European.

Where can I find great sushi near San Rafael> I used to be a huge fan of Sushi to Dai For on 4th Street but the trendy rolls have been turning me off lately.
