Chowhounds sounded off like crazy on a thread asking which restaurant resonated most with out-of-towners. No surprise that Gary Danko and Chez Panisse got a lot of mentions, but there are some other gems in here as well.
As for us, we always take visitors for a burrito at Taqueria San Francisco on 24th and York for a real, top-of-the-line San Francisco super burrito. Also a drink at the Top of the Mark. Every city has some version of haute cuisine, but none can match the local gem that is the Mission burrito or the views at the Top.
What’s your out-of-towner standby?
