Benu vs. Coi vs. ???

AnonymousWaitress | Nov 1, 2010 01:41 PM

Trying to decide between Benu vs. Coi for a trip, will be staying in SF with no car and not interested in a long cab ride outside the city. We really want something unique that we cannot get in Phoenix, where we do not feel rushed (celebrating boyfriend's birthday but don't need white tablecloths and candlelight).

Are tasting menus required at Benu and Coi or can one person do a la carte and one person do the tasting? Should we consider TDR at the Ritz, La Folie? Benu and Coi seem to have the most adventurous/innovative menus however. Maybe someone can explain the differences a little to me? I've gathered that Coi is a little fish/veg heavy which worries me.

Thanks for the help!! Love the SF board, so much more extensive than Phoenix!!
