I'm not an SF local, but my husband is originally from the Bay area. I'm planning a 30th birthday dinner for him with 12 or so guests. After tons of research and asking everyone I know, I think I've narrowed it down to Chaya (semi-private table with view) or AQ (whiskey lounge) based on the following criteria:
1. private or semi-private space for 14 people
2. around $50 per person
3. has a fun, adventurous menu that will make for a memorable dinner
4. trendy vibe
5. a view
Husband wanted a private space or a view. His main concern is that everyone will have fun and enjoy the meal. Which would you choose? Am I missing a total no brainer restaurant that would be perfect?
Thank you all!
