We are going to be in San Francisco for several days next month. Unfortunately, Valentine's Day will fall right in the middle of our stay.
We NEVER would go out for dinner on Valentine's Day if we were at home. It is one of THE worst nights to eat out, IMHO [along with NYE and Mother's Day].
What about alternative to eating out? Some good "to go" or "take out" that would give us a nice meal in hotel room.
We don't mind paying $$ for meals that are memorable. We just hate to have to pay for a "special" prix fixe outrageous meal with few options etc.
IF we must go out - we will be staying in Union Square area and won't have a car. We don't mind taking public transit.
Can you suggest a local neighborhood place that you love that won't be in that frenzy? Cuisine is open, price under $150 for 2.
