my GF and i will be staying @the palazzo for 3 nights the end of oct. we are probably going to bouchon for breakfast, lotus of siam and lindo michocan for either lunch or dinner (we've rented a car). we were leaning towards bartolotta for our anniversary dinner, but have been scared off a little by some bad reviews mentioning poor, or worse, rude service. also curious about l'atelier (more me than the GF), alex, DB brasserie, nobhill and picasso. two caveats to any choice would be cost (hoping to keep it to about 150pp) and disappointments we've had in the past going to restaurants where the "name' chef is not actually physically running the kitchen. any advice would be much appreciated.
