I'm coming to SF from NYC on December 8th. I have only one night to sample the highly esteemed cuisine of the bay area.
I've got to be at a cocktail event at 8PM but I would love to eat dinner beforehand with one friend.
We're thinking of perhaps a nicer restaurant with dining at the bar or tapas type food in the Union Square area.
not break the bank
good wine by the glass
not super heavy food
open at 5:30 / 6PM
any recs are greatly appreciated!
