5 Concierge Recommendations for a Perfect Day Out in San Francisco

Charisse Fazzari

Charisse Fazzari, Chief Concierge, Mandarin Oriental

“Begin your day at Sears Fine Food restaurant / diner (439 Powell St), a San Francisco institution since the 1930s. After breakfast enjoy a morning of shopping in Union Square where you will find Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Gump’s, Wilkes Bashford and Tiffany’s, to name just a few.

Climb aboard one of our world class cable cars and experience the ride of a lifetime, winding around the curves and the steep hills of San Francisco. Don’t forget to get off on Lombard to see the crookedest street in the world. Next, spend time in Ghirardelli Square and try some of the world famous chocolate before continuing on to explore the Fisherman’s Wharf area where you can enjoy some of the freshest seafood available. After lunch, head towards North Beach, our Italian quarter; by this point, you will be ready for dessert and an espresso pick-me-up! One block from North Beach is Chinatown, the perfect place to purchase fortune cookies or other San Francisco souvenirs to bring home. End the perfect day by enjoying dinner at one of the city’s many wonderful restaurants.”
