Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco is in the heart of downtown, which means you can find just about anything you’d like to eat in mere minutes — haute cuisine, fast food, locavore lunch, and so on. Within a one-block walk of the hotel, you’ll find upscale Indian at Amber, tasty margaritas at Tropisueno, Japanese cream puffs at Beard Papa, wonderful wine at Press Club, Japanese-American dishes at Ame and dozens of teas at Samovar.
For a quick bite, head down Market Street to the Westfield Shopping Centre’s food court. The lower-level space is surprising and the Asian fusion at Out The Door always draws a crowd. (It’s also easier to get a table here than at its popular big-sister restaurant, The Slanted Door.) Take a trip to Chinatown and stop in Utopa Cafe for shrimp-filled wontons, visit Delfina for a wood-oven-roasted calamari salad, or grab a burger and a milkshake at Mo’s Yerba Buena Gardens. Note that the majority of San Francisco restaurants close earlier than those of, say, Los Angeles or New York. Plan accordingly, and you’ll inevitably wind up well-fed.
