Birthday dinner for 2 on Thursday. Looking to spend up to $150 or so for food and 2 cocktails. Any suggestions? Marin, East Bay, or SF would work. We'd generally choose cozy over formal. It doesn't need to be overly celebratory.
Not too keen on small plates or menus that have 3 entrees. Don't need a great wine list. Aziza looks perfect but we don't love Moroccan.
In the east bay, we're considering Rivoli (is there a full bar?) or Lalime's, perhaps. Camino is appealing for cocktails but the menu feels a bit small.
In the city maybe Firefly? Range?
We like Buckeye and Panama Hotel in Marin, but it would be fun to try somewhere we haven't been yet.
If we choose a place without a full bar, perhaps we'll go somewhere for a drink first and then have dinner.
Thanks so much!
