    know / know of

    I'm currently enjoying my travel in San Francisco. I went to Fisherman's Wharf with my friend today and there were quite a number of eateries. Since my friend lives there I asked if he knows any good place. I said "Do you know of any good place?"
    Then I thought I could have said the same sentence without 'of' and still made the same sense. I don't know, maybe I shouldn't have used 'of' at all.

    Are they all correct? if they all are, any difference?

    Please let me know, thank you very much.

    Re: know / know of

    'of' isn't necessary.

    EX: Do you know (of) any good places? (note, any + plural noun)

    Glad to hear you're having a good time.
