This is a beautiful restaurant which specializes in an upscale Greek and Mediterranean food. Try to go with a group so you can try multiple items. For appetizers, I'd suggest the filo pies, zucchini cakes or calamari. If you like lamb, they roast whole, locally...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people

historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
