“The ultimate [travel day] for me would be one perfect day in San Francisco. It’s a perfect 72 degrees, clear, the sky bright blue. I’d start down at Fisherman’s Wharf with someone I really like and end with a romantic dinner and a ride over the Golden Gate Bridge
. There’s no city like it anywhere. And, if I could be there with the girl of my dreams, that would be the ultimate.” Larry King

A few popular restaurants in San Francisco
Few places in the world rival San Francisco in the quality and variety of eating options. The City offers everything from chic downtown dining rooms to burrito joints. Specialty food shops add to the mix, along with culinary centers, such as the Ferry Building and Off-the-Grid food-truck events. The dynamic restaurant scene is shaped by world-class chefs drawing on the bounty of local farms. The only downside is having to narrow the choices.
