Birthday dinner with kids on the BART line in SF

yamada3 | Oct 20, 2006 02:40 AM

Do you have any good suggestions where we can get a festive dinner along the BART line with two kids (6 & 9 yrs old) in tow? I will have a riot to deal with if they have to walk more than 5 seconds, although I can probably whip them to move for 3 min.

Since I am going to be in SF already for an afternoon drink at the Ferry Building, I prefer somewhere around Embarcadero or Union Sq area, but I'm flexible.

I am looking for good food that will keep the 6 yr old entertained, something in the line of:

1. Espetus Churrascaria (is it really worth $40 per person????)
2. Juni Teppanyaki (kind of far, but maybe we can send the kids & one adult off on a cab if there is one around)
3. Matterhorn Fondue (also not BART-able)

All three choices are not ideal because EC sounds a lot for an AYCE place and Juni and Matterhorn are not BART-able.

I considered taking the MUNI bus to Japantown for Juban or Shabu-sen, but I think the kids will be complaining a whole lot on the way home...

I really appreciate any suggestions! I considered Chinese banquets, but we have those all the time in the South Bay, so I was hoping for something a bit different... I saw on Opentable that Cortez still had reservations open - would that be a good choice?

Thanks so much!
