Just the best food town in California, if not the whole U.S.

OK so you all know about the dope smoking hippies in Haight-Ashbury plus that famous red bridge to the north, but this town rocks for food and drink so our top suggestions are as follows;
Get coffee from the Blue Bottle Coffee company in the Ferry Building on the Embarcerdero. Whilst you are there, get some chocolates from Recchiuti, also in the Ferry Building. Mrs B just melts when she eats them (which she is doing as I type!).
Have dinner at The House - the salmon rolls are to die for, but get some funky libations first from 15 Romolo round the corner. Not salubrious but with these drinks and a jukebox with an eclectic mix of the Cure, Blur, Tribe Called Quest, The Smiths and the Go-Gos, you can stay there for hours thinking it was sometime between 1981 and 1984.
Now where did I leave that bottle of pinot noir?
