I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for San Francisco for my son with peanut, treenut, sesame and egg allergies. I am aware of In-n-Out, Chipotle and Rubios. I am specifically interested in places that do not have any nuts or sesame on their menus. Thanks!

allerav-I don't live in San Francisco, but the following website might be of some help.

You can search allergen friendly restaurants by city and by allergy.
I looked up the San Francisco listing and the link is here. Don't forget to call the restaurant beforehand to double check that they are safe.

I am in SF as I write with my peanut/tree nut allergic children. This is very challenging. As for seeds ALL of the bread here has seeds since every restaurant including the chains seems to purchase the famous SF sourdough bread which looks wonderful unless you have food allergies. This is by far the hardest city I have encountered regarding food allergies as there are very few chains. I highly suggest you finding a hotel that has a kitchenette as there are (purposely) very few chains here.
Here is the good news, here is where we have managed so far. . .
Denny's at the Holiday Inn near Fisherman's Wharf
La Salsa at Pier 39
Carl's Junior and Subway in the Downtown
Il Fornio (though only pizza no bread) on Battery St.
Please be wary as so far I have had tons of blank looks from people when inquiring about food safety. We are actually moving hotels to a suite with a kitchen (we are here 10 days) just to make things easier. The really good news is that if you cook the fresh fruit, veggies and fish are amazing. Good luck!!!
