In San Francisco you could eat — and eat well — at a different eatery every day for several lifetimes, even if you live to be Methuselah. Each neighborhood has a plethora of restaurants, bistros, cafes, coffee shops with every taste catered for. You can window-shop — or menu-shop — the Castro neighborhood, spilling over into The Mission.
