San Francisco is indisputably the nation's top destination for fine dining. Saison, Benu, Atelier Crenn, Coi ... the list goes on and on. So it can be tempting to want to try them all out, but not all of us are raking in that techie money. Or even if you are, it can still be hard to part with so much of a paycheck for one meal.

(And if the allure of fine dining on the cheap doesn't appeal, here are some of San Francisco's Essential Cheap Eats that won't drain the ol' bank account.)
