San Fransisco city tours guide you visit the San Fransisco city and tell you 5 best things to do in San Fransisco family weekend vacation.
Get takeout at Tony’s or try Il Casaro
As the first American to win the World Champion Pizza Maker title in Naples,Tony Gemingnani has undoubtedly earned the sometimes two-hour-plus waits at Tony’s Pizza Napoletana.But if you’re too hungry to wait,we suggest going next door for Tony’s takeout at the Slice House.True,you won’t get to watch your pizza emerge blistering from the 1,000-degree coal-fired oven,but it will still taste damn good(just don’t wait until you get home to eat it).A fantastic no-wait alternative in North Beach is Il Casaro,which produces equally exquisitely thin and blistered Neapolitan-style pizzas and panuozzo,a heavenly stuffed sandwich made with pizza dough.
Go gourmet at AT&T Park
Garlic fries and Cha Cha Bowls may be old news to Giants fans,but did you know you could also get eggplant panini,fresh sushi and sashimi,grilled crab sandwiches,and pizzas topped with basil picked fresh from an on-site hydroponic garden?To try these ballpark treats,head(in order)to:Giuseppe Bazurro,Mashi’s Sushi Bistro(both club level),Crazy Crab’z,and the Edible Garden(both center field).Other under-the-radar favorites:California Cookout’s ahi tuna sandwiches(promenade level),the Doghouse’s Bangkok hot dogs topped with pickled cucumber,daikon,red onion,jalape?o,cilantro and sriracha(club level),Edsel Ford Fong’s beef and broccoli bowl(center field),and the Anchor Steam taproom behind the center-field scoreboard.If none of these options appeal,BYO—AT&T allows outside food(just no alcohol).
Find your food truck
Food trucks are everywhere,all the time these days,but sometimes any old breaded chicken schnitzel topped with caraway-paprika honey,chopped liver,horseradish aioli,and cabbage slaw won’t do.That’s when you turn to Roaming Hunger,a website/app that locates all your favorite food trucks for you.Search for trucks using the map or by list of vendors.If nothing comes up on the map,click on the truck name for their Twitter feed.
Discover a secret sky-view lounge
Rooftop bars and sky-view lounges are a dying breed in San Francisco.The famed few that remain—Top of the Mark,Starlight Room,the View—make up for it with hefty cover and cocktail prices.Opened in 1946,the Marines Memorial Club(609 Sutter St at Mason St)is dedicated to the U.S.Marines who served in the Pacific during World War II.Slip up to the top floor of the hotel/club to discover the Leatherneck Steakhouse&Lounge.Here you can sip a strong cocktail in the company of gents in suit jackets reminiscing about their war years while gazing over the city skyline and listening to piano man Jerome tickle the ivories.The best part:There’s no cover,and the drinks are downright cheap(especially during the 4–6pm happy hour).
Devour cheap Dungeness
Fresh Dungeness crab is one of the joys of winter,but if you want to avoid paying premium Fisherman’s Wharf or fancy market prices,you need to head to Sun Fat Seafood Co.in the Mission.The unassuming market offers great prices on a huge variety of fresh seafood and shellfish,including 12–15 varieties of oysters,mussels,salmon,sushi-grade fish and fresh-caught Dungeness.
