Commis OR Ame?

OliverB | Dec 17, 2011 06:13 PM

I'm not sure if these are considered to be in the same category; I get the sense that Ame is the 'finer dining' of the two, with a slightly higher price tag to match, and the more unique/inventive table?

I'm somewhat limited in my meals as I will only be in town for 14 days and many of which are compromised or restricted by evening plans. I really wanted to try Ame while in SF though, and am starting to feel it's a mistake to pass it over. Currently I have dinner res at Commis in Oakland on our last night. I'm debating swapping that for Ame instead. Please see my food itinerary in the following thread to get a better idea of where we'll be eating out:

Should I trade in a meal at Commis for Ame, swap something else in place, or would you not recommend changing anything?

Of the two restaurants, which would you pick and why? Which is better representative of the local Bay Area food scene? Which of the two is the m\ore innovative and interesting choice?

Are they at all comparable?

Thanks for your help!
