We have some good friends flying into town for an overnight layover on Thursday, August 25th. It will be their 10th anniversary, so they'd like to go out to somewhere with good choices for vegetarians (we're not, they are), and they're arriving SFO at 8:30 PM, so I figure we have a dinner start time around 9:30 PM in SF (best case).
I've reviewed all of the usual vegetarian suspects - if I had to choose I'd figure out a way to get them to stay an extra day and take them up to Ubuntu in Napa, but lacking that option, the only place that sounds vaguely interesting is Greens (it's an SF classic, if not spectacular food). I have not been impressed with Millennium, though it's been a few years.
Any suggestions for a vegetarian-friendly restaurant, nice atmosphere for a special dinner, quiet enough for conversation, open and serving late hours?
