For a business lunch or a special dinner, this glorious seafood restaurant at the Ferry Building is perfect. Chef Charles Phan has created a modern Vietnamese seafood menu at his family’s restaurant in one of the most popular spots in the city. You need to book well ahead for dinner (do it online). If you can’t get in, try one of the other Phan restaurants or bars around the city.
The Embarcadero sits adjacent to downtown and along San Francisco’s waterfront. It’s tourist-central and is jam-packed with things to do and is a great place to get some sun and people watch. It’s also, joy of joys, one of the flattest parts of a hilly town.
