Food in Northern California

Jump to last reply

As many of you know, I have another thread about our upcoming trip in general, but I'd like to focus on just the food for now. This will basically be an anniversary trip (no kids or friends!) even though it was earlier this month. Here are some details.

Arrive in San Fran just before noon and rent a car to drive to Pacific Grove where we will stay for 2 nights. Breakfast will be included with our room both mornings of our stay in the Monterey area. So we will be looking at the following:

- Lunch on the way to PG, one lunch in the Monterey area, and lunch on the way back to SF.
- Two dinners in the Monterey environs, PG, Carmel or Monterey.

Then we'll have 4 nights in San Fran, arriving no later than 6 PM on our return from PG. Breakfast will NOT be included in SF. The following are places I'm pretty determined to include for various reasons that may not make sense to anyone else. Our flight out of SF will be early afternoon, so we plan to have breakfast at Cafe la Presse that morning because it is near our hotel.

- Sears for breakfast
- Tadich Grill (not sure whether to do lunch or dinner)
- In-N-Out Burger

I'd like to have Dim Sum for lunch one day and would prefer to keep entrees (for the higher priced meals) under $30 - $40. We don't usually order dessert, because we prefer to have an appetizer and/or soup or salad. I have a huge list I've compiled from various sources, but I'd like to see what you all throw out.

As always...thx for all you suggestions!
