I'm looking for a place to do a Saturday night dinner for 10 people, 6-8 adults and two 14-year olds. I'm looking for something with reasonably large portions to satisfy the growing boys, that provides the out-of-towners some type of SF experience, but will also satisfy the chowhounders among us. Ideally this place would be located such that the parents could put the kids in a cab back to a Union Square hotel, and the adults could stay out for cocktails.
I'm thinking 2223 Market would be a good balance, because they handle large groups fairly well. Any other great ideas?
