Is there somewhere cheaper than Chapeau in that area that has good food with a nice atmosphere? I'm trying to find a place to go in/near the Richmond district, and all the places I've come across seem to be a bit over some of our budgets.
I have to agree with another poster that it seems like people in SF are used to spending $$ on food. Are $20-30 main dishes considered cheap in SF?
I don't want a hole-in-the-wall restaurant for $10-15 main dishes. Do semi-nice places a this price range exist in SF? I was hoping for non-Chinese, non-Vietnamese, since I eat that food all the time at home. I'm also not a fan of cheese (dairy product issues), so Mexican is pretty much out. French/Italian is ideal, but those places seem extra expensive. Is that right?
