Great places to eat neat westin st francis

Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if there are any great places to eat around the Westin St Francis? I was thinking something award winning or highly rated? Doesnt need to be very high end. A nice hot dog works as well as a great steak. Thanks so much.

There are hundreds of restaurants in Union square. Check www.yelp.com or www.urbanspoon.com for reviews if you like. Hot dog ? Well that is not a SF speciality though you can get one in any deli or store or just walk around Union square for a cart with hotdogs. There is a steakhouse in the St Francis but it is expensive. Search for steakhouses on this forum for info. Harris has great steaks as does Bobo or Izzy's but they are not in union sq

Would you rather believe my opinion and that of 4-5 people who post here with a reply or take your time and read reviews (each may have over a 100 or 500) on yelp. Palates are different, budgets are different. Would I eat at Bourbon steak with duck fat fries at the Westin itself and have a couple of bourbon drinks and then walk up to my room at the hotel. Absolutely but it is not cheap and perhaps you may not want to do that. Bottom line budgets vary, tastes vary so any of those steak restaurants would be fine

Burger Bar at Macy's was the best of the places we dined in Union Square, but then again we only ate at 3 places in Union Square, lol. Also breakfast at the restaurant at Sir Francis Drake was same price as across the street at Sears Fine Food and no line!

If you're looking for "award winning" then look at Zagat or whoever is giving out the awards.

If you'd like something more out of the way, check out Belden Alley or Claude Lane -- both of which are about 4 blocks from Union Square.

Award winning but a hot dog works as well leaves it open to a lot of interpretations but Belden Alley as Sal suggested is worth looking at.

Also Fino's at the Andrews Hotel in Post Street is good Italian.

Grand Café we like.

Jeanne D'Arc is one of our favorites and one of the best bargains in SF. On the same block, at Powell and Bush, is Uncle Vito's. Pretty good Italian at a low (for SF) price. And yes, Belden Alley and Claude Lane are relatively close by and offer several options.
