Have fun!

There is an In-and-Out Burger down near Fisherman's Wharf-- it is located in the old cannery in between the west end of the Fisherman's Wharf area and Ghiradelli Square.

What kinds of restaurants are you looking for?
I assume you need places for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
Where are you staying?I mean what part of SF?
I have found that most of the Pizza restaurants and mexican restaurants are safe
I will wait till you write back to give specific names.

Thanks everyone! We are staying by the Wharf near Ghirardelli and the cable car turn around.
I am a huge In-N-Out fan, but my daughter won't eat at fast food restaurants. I am looking for nice lunch & dinner places....my kids are seasoned travellers and we generally avoid chain restaurants and kiddy type places. I have heard great things about Greens and would love to go, but they do a lot of vegan and the nuts scare me. Any good Italian home style places near the Wharf or North Beach? Has anyone had safe Dim Sum?
Thanks for any help, we leave tomorrow!

We went to Alioto's one evening we were there. They handled my shellfish allergy very well, making a pasta sauce specially for me with no shrimp in it. I don't know how they would have handled DD's allergies (she's MLTFA including egg) but the food (and wine!) was great and they didn't care that we brought her food in with us. The view of the Marina and the Golden Gate was fantastic.
We had a more mixed experience at Rainforest Cafe. I would give them a C, but DD [i]did[/i] eat there without incident. (Though we had to send her food back three times.) The food was frankly mediocre at best.
We also ate at Boudin Bakery with no trouble, but [i]she[/i] did not. They [i]do[/i] make a walnut bread. We didn't ask whether the restaurant bread is made on site or if it comes from the downtown bakery.
Please keep in mind that our troubles with restaurants are far more related to DD's egg allergy or my shrimp allergy than her PA. With PA alone, we might well have done Alioto's for her, and I certainly would have asked at Boudin.
There are a lot of little family-style or Bistro-style restaurants in that area of the city, though. You shouldn't have any trouble finding one to accommodate PA, but I would make a point of avoiding rush times if you can.
The other thing you can do is ride the cable-car up the Powell and Hyde line to Russian Hill and explore some of the restaurant scene there. There are some nice little places there as well-- many Italian. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
We got a citypass while we were there and rode the streetcars and the cable cars [i]everywhere[/i].... LOL! DD [i]loved[/i] it. She also LOVED the Asian Art Museum downtown.
Have fun!!

Thanks for all the ideas. We were planning a trip to Boudin Bakery, but I will call ahead now to find out if they bake the walnut bread there...ds is LTA to walnuts!!!
The city pass is such a great deal, and my son is so excited that it includes the Ripley's Believe it Or Not Museum....I can't wait! We are going to spend a lot of time at the Exploratorium (dad is a science geek!) and I hope to go to the SF Museum of Modern Art.
I will post the good, bad and ugly of SF eating when I get back!

We are back! What a great city! We were only there three days, but what a blast! We had one snag...ds had a reaction! Against my gut, we went to Gherardelli and had ice cream...big mistake. He developed a hive after being in the place about 10 minutes. Benedryl cleared it up and I learned yet another valuable lesson -- listen to my gut!!!
Ok, we also had some awesomely good eating experiences:
1. Pinetti and Puccini in Union Square -- I called to make a reservation and the first question they asked was "does anyone in your party have a food allergy?" I told them yes, a severe nut allergy, and the women said she would note it on our reservation. As soon as we walked in the door (after a great cable car ride from the wharf to Union Square)they said "you have someone with a nut allergy." Then our waitress went over the menu and told us what had nuts. Then my son had the best time making his own pizza and watching it cook, while I enjoyed a relaxing meal!!!
2. We had a nice meal our first night at the Blue Mermaid at the Wharf (in the Argonaut Hotel). A nice seafood place with a relaxing atmosphere and the prices weren't horrible. My daughter had her first Clam Chowder in a Sourdough bowl and loved it.
3. Trattoria Contadina in North Beach was warm, intimate and very Italian. Had a nice and safe meal!
4. Bought sandwiches at the Ferry Market from an Italian deli (the name started with an M...Malucci's??)
We hit almost every place we wanted to see. I really enjoyed the Musee Mechanique at Pier 45 -- lots of old movieolas and mechanical games from the early 1900s up to the 1980s. Ripley's was a let down, and the Exploratorium rocked! SF is a great food city, but I think if we had a sea food allergy in the family it would be really hard. Also, loved all the WiFi access and the cool looking people.
