My boyfriend and I are unfortunately unable to return home to join our families this Christmas. We're looking to treat ourselves right in lieu of a home-cooked dinner that would only seem pitiful in comparison to the feasts our respective parents have.
Where can we go that would serve us an excellent holiday meal in a warm, romantic setting that might not break our budgets (say about $100 max including wine). Anywhere in the Bay Area is an option.
Note: we tried to do this same thing in Portland for Thanksgiving, with great success, at the Heathman Hotel, if anyone is familiar with that lovely establishment. Our meal was excellent and we had a cozy window table looking out on the rainy Oregon night. We want something like that, but I am at a loss being somewhat new to the SF restaurant scene.
