Last March, this Midwest hound had a very memorable birthday dinner at Boulevard, on the recommendation of the San Fran hounds here. Now, my partner and I will be returning to the Bay Area for her birthday, in May (and yes, believe me when I say there's good reason to start looking for a place this far in advance....It's nearly impossible to find a restaurant she likes), and while she very much enjoyed Boulevard as well, she wants to try somewhere else for her big night out.
We'll be staying in Japantown at the Hotel Kabuki (formerly the Miyako), with no car, so our destination will have to be within an fair cab ride. Looking for somewhere that's romantic, primarily steak and seafood, with killer desserts. Hoping to spend around $75/pp before tip for three courses and a drink or two apiece.
Any suggestions? The soon to open Waterbar looks interesting to me. I know they'll have primarily seafood... any idea if they're doing steaks as well?
