Help me brainstorm options for dinner in SF?

Dave MP | Mar 17, 201505:49 PM

Here are the specifications:

-- I can make a reservation (or be sure I can walk-in) for a party of 6 on Thursday evening around 7:15 (i.e. in 48 hours from now)

--Within a 5-10 min walk of one of the downtown or Mission BART Stations (Embarcadero thru 24th)

--Has good vegetarian options

--Casual, but still a real sit-down restaurant (i.e. you sit and place your order when the server comes to your table)

And obviously good food, especially something that would be interesting to visitors from the east coast. One place that immediately comes to mind is Old Jerusalem, which I really like. But any other places that could be good? How is Tuba for Turkish? Another possibility is Angkor Borei for Cambodian? The latter is a place I've been to many times, including quite recently, which is a reason it's not a top contender right now.

I feel like there must be lots of great places that could work, and I'm hoping my initial suggestions will help trigger some ideas in others? Probably less interested in standard pub/burgers/pizza type places.

Thanks very much in advance!
