Subject: re: San Francisco Restaurants
Our favorite restaurant in the City is i Fratelli at 1896 Hyde Street. It is one street toward the Bay from Hyde and Vallejo St. The owner's wife is a Doctor in our town. It is Italian with fresh fish specials daily. I would call for reservations at 415-474-8240. Tell him Juliet's parents Susan and Wendell from Merced sent you. Our daughter lives right on Hyde Street about a block away. The Hyde Street Cable Car would be fun to ride there and take a cab back to your Hotel.

Also 2 blocks down is Polk Street which has a good South East Asian restaurant called Lemon Grass. Polk Streek has lots of things to see, antique stores, coffee houses, markets, shops, etc. It's a fun area, lots of locals, not so many tourists. Kind of how we like to see Europe, not just the tourist attractions but get a feel of the local color.
