I'm an LA Board poster and would like a couple of suggestions for dinners in SF at the end of September. Friends are staying near Union Square, like all types of food (though one does not eat beef, lamb or pork) and can afford good food.
I haven't lived in SF in years, but suggested Zuni Cafe (it was a new addition to the scene when I lived there, and I hope its longevity means that it is still a great place to eat). Several years ago (2003?)I had dinner at Absinthe with a friend and thought it was quite good, but have no idea if it still exists.
If they were going to be in the East Bay, I'd suggest the Bay Wolf. So any other options in this vein would be much appreciated.
