Date Night - Classic California Cuisine?

princess00 | Apr 5, 2012 01:56 PM

Hi Chowhounds ...

So, my hubby and I are visiting the Bay Area in May and I've narrowed down our dinner options - except for one night. He finally gave me the green light to plan a splurge dinner - no budget limit. Woo hoo!

However, I'm trying to select a restaurant that offers classic Californian cuisine and am struggling to locate options. Most of what comes back frequently on the boards that I have perused and have looked interesting to me (Lers Ros, Aziza, Mandalay, etc.) have been nixed by the hubby. =( So, I'm now searching for something less globally adventurous, but equally tasty.

Any suggestions? We are from Texas so we would prefer to avoid Steakhouses and Mexican (which are plentiful here), and I've already reserved an Italian restaurant (Delfina) on another night. Given that San Francisco is on the Bay, I thought maybe seafood or sushi would be good, but from reading the boards - those options don't seem to be a strong point on the food scene??

Looking for a meal that when we leave, we say "Wow, San Francisco is a great food town! Best meal E-VER."

Please help!
