Getting excited about our upcoming visit Dec 18-22. Family with two boys, 10 and 13. We'll be doing the Exploratorium, Ferry Building, Cal. Academy of Sciences, Alcatraz, etc. and staying in Nob Hill. Will have a car, also CityPass for bus/cable car rides.
I've been happily researching restaurants, and here's what I have so far:
By the Exploratorium: Had a hard time with this, only found Lucca Delicatassen. Anything else nearby if we want to break for lunch then go back ? (Not interested in themed restaurants like Johnny Rockets.)
By California Academy of Sciences: Chow, Gordo Taqueria, or the Academy Cafe in the museum.
Slanted Door or Mijita or just get picnic items
Others that look good:
Colibri Mexican Bistro (happy hour looks yummy, too)
Bi-Rite Creamery Ice Cream
McCormick & Kuleto's (happy hour looks great...okay to take kids, too?)
Any of these too dressy for jeans? Do any restaurants close completely the week of Christmas? Any comments/suggestions appreciated!
Thanks for your help!
