Best Cheap Eats Near Union Square?

A friend is going to be out in SF for a few days and is seeking recommendations for excellent cheap places to eat that are easy for a tourist to find. Thanks!

Anything new in Burlington, Vt. ?

In Burlington itself: Bluebird, Farmhouse (very new), Single Pebble are all good for sit-down. Bistro Sauce in Shelburne is superb - chef had run his own (dearly departed) Big Chile Republic, and brings a sort of fusion Filipino-Vermont-localvore sensibility to the menu. Michael's in Waterbury is great. Lots of terrific foods at any farmer's market too.

Burlington VT, best bar with a fireplace

Scuffer has a woodstove (not always on), and really good beer selection.

Foie Gras in Burlington, Vt. ?

Might be worth checking to see if Bluebird Tavern has it. Pretty impressive list of charcuterie. Ditto Farmhouse.

Terroir in Maple Syrup

I was just at an event where there were samples of syrup from farms that sit over different types of bedrock, and an assertion that it was possible to detect the differences between syrup harvested over schist, metamorphic & [a third] type of rock.
