My wife & I have come for our honeymoon w/o doing our chow homework. Biggest advice need: a no-holds-barred dinner to which we can wear a jacket and little black dress, respectively. We don't want the fanciest place for fanciness's sake: excellent food, preferably local-vorish & creative, is the top priority, but somewhere sexy/stylish/elegant that'll feel right for a dressed-up date. (In SF, if analogy is useful, say Gary Danko/La Folie/Myth or, more casual, Delfina/Range/Foreign Cinema.) We're excited to try Chambar and Boneta while here, but they sound a bit casual for this outing (or am I wrong?).
2nd biggest need: lunch spot in, or walking distance from, Stanley Park--any cuisine but sushi (one of the first sacrifices of pregnancy/impending parenthood). Thanks!
