We have a group (~6) coming from out of town to a show at the Warfield and are looking for recommendations for a low-stress but yummy dinner before the show.
We have at least one vegetarian in the group and at least one couple on a budget. Wine is essential. We've enjoyed A16 on recent visits to SF, but I'm not sure it's a good fit for this group.
Pane e Vino has been recommended, but I'd like to hear what the SF chows have to say.
As an aside, Thanks to chowhound recommendations we've had wonderful and memorable trips to Reno, Pizetta 211, Cafe Verbena and even some places in Sacramento - you guys rock!
