San Francisco is a prime tourist destination, mobbed by people from all walks of life every year. An eclectic, patchwork metropolis where high-class is juxtaposed regularly with the eccentric. If you’re planing on heading to San Fran to take in the sights, we’d like to recommend some upscale restaurants where you can also take in the tastes.
First on the list is the Navio at the Ritz-Carlton in Half-Moon Bay. This establishment offers fine dining with a view of the ocean, new menus presented daily, a unique open-air kitchen, and private dining.
If your pallet favors French quisine, look into the Chez Panisse, in Berkeley. A two story establishment, the restaurant has an intimate, homey feeling with a menu that changes every single day. The upstairs half has a full menu with a la carte selections available and reservations are recommended, as this place fills up quickly. The head chef of Chez Panisse has made a tradition of using only the finest ingredients and refining them into something special.
What about the nightlife? Try Bix restaurant for something with a little more spice to it. The decor is thirties supper club style, there’s live jazz nightly, and a full bar.
