I have one night for dinner in SF. I am staying at Le Meridien, and Sons and Daughters looks to be walking distance (around 3/4 mile). I would need a cab to either of the other two, which offsets some of the higher cost at Sons and Daughters (how much is a mile and a half cab ride in SF anyway?). I have read MANY discussions about all 3 restaurants, including those which directly compare AQ and Commonwealth. But please humor me and weigh in! Factor in that I am a solo diner, and that I value inventive, new flavor combinations above all else and food far higher than atmosphere or service, and tell me which you would choose!
