Suggestions for a couple birthday dinners... [San Francisco]

yankeefoxtrot | May 12, 2014 01:03 PM

I am hoping to take my boyfriend to the city for a weekend getaway for his birthday and have a couple requirements that are not so easily searched for but easily recommended from personal experience -- and I think chowhounders are just the folks to help...

I would like to pick out two nice places for dinner. I don't mind spending a lot of money as long as the food is in line. We are both foodies but I have a much more moderate appetite than him which is a problem we run into with higher end cusine. I love the trend towards smaller portions, whereas he doesn't find them satisfying at all. (I have a feeling I would love a place like Atelier Crenn, but he would not for one example). I also prefer a good spirits program whereas he's perfectly happy with a not too complicated beer menu.

We are adventuresome eaters and like all kinds of cuisine - sushi, Italian, French, Thai, seafood, steak. They must take reservations (hate having plans like that up in the air!)

Even with my obsessive menu stalking and chowhound reading it's hard to get a read on portion sizes that will work for both of us. Some places I've considered (additional suggestions very much welcome!):

Acquerello
A16
Izakaya Yuzuki
Perbacco
Aziza
Bix
Range
Zuni

I hope this was specific enough and appreciate any help you can provide.

Atelier Crenn,
Acquerello,
A16 Rockridge,
Perbacco,
Bix,
Zuni Café.
