Need a birthday dinner recommendation w/ great wine

ttib | Feb 12, 201101:33 PM

My friend and I will be in SF next month for a conference (we’re both East Coasters). It’s her birthday while we’re there, so I’d like to take her out and am looking for suggestions. Her requirements are simply “must have a great wine list.” I’d like someplace where we’ll be able to talk (so not too noisy) and great food. Some friends who live in SF have suggested: Boulevard, Prospect, Chez Papa Resto, Americano, Spruce, Banker and Baker, 25 Lusk (and also Gitane, 54 Mint, or Thermidor, and Slanted Door). Thoughts on these? Better suggestions?

We’ll be staying somewhere between Union Square and the Convention Center, but anywhere in the city itself would work.


Slanted Door
Ferry Slip, San Francisco, CA 94111

Chez Papa Resto
4 Mint Plaza, San Francisco, CA 94103

Gitane Restaurant & Bar
6 Claude Lane, San Francisco, CA 94108

54 Mint
54 Mint St, San Francisco, CA 94103

8 Mint Plaza, San Francisco, CA 94103
