While it was really gorgeously sunny the first day and a half of our trip...

The fog rolled in very nicely for the last half...

Thanks! We wont have a car until we leave Saturday to go to Tahoe. The parking at hotels is outrageous and we wouldnt be able to expense it since the office he will be working from is close to the hotel. But Im sure we could take an Uber.
Oysters in any form are fine with me! Ill check out the places you all recommended.

Being from the Northeast, is there anything I should seek out in SF that isnt common in NYC?

 

Cioppino or sand dabs, if you go to the seafood places.  Anything with marionberries or ollalieberries if they're available this time of year.  Too bad you're too late for Dungeness crab season.

Focaccia from Liguria Bakery on the corner of Stockton and Filbert.    Opens at 8 and closes at 2 OR when they sell out which can be earlier than that.    Theirs has nothing to do with any focaccia you have ever had.    It's best hours out of the oven.    Just go in for the aroma if nothing else.

So now Im thinking Hog Island for Oysters. Zuni Cafe for the roast chicken (is it still as good as people claim?) and Liholiho Yacht Club because the menu looks insanely good.
Ill be on my own during the day and depending on if I take advantage of business class and sleep on the flight out (Ill be seeing Billy Joel the night before we leave) I may take advantage of Caviar/ Postmates/ UberEats a few times.
One restaurant in the hotel looks decent Urban Table.

Any must eats at AT&T Park? Thanks in advance!

St. Helena's iconic Terra restaurant to close.   Staff is faced with housing crisis due to relocation of fire victims.

I did want to go when we were there for our short trip, but the timing didn't work out. I know - that really helps.

It's the thought that counts.
