Going to Cirque Sat Dec 7th, evening show. Will have a group of 8 adults. None of us live or work in the area so I was hoping Chowhound could help us out.
-Open early, we'll probably eat before the show, around 5pm
-Ideally within a short walk of AT&T Park or between the Park and the Montgomery BART station, Half of us will not have cars (arriving via BART).
-Vegetarian-friendly (by which I mean having more than 1 vegetarian entree on the dinner menu).
-Price range around $40 a person or less, not including liquor. Casual is fine, but we would like to sit down at a table and not sit on a sidewalk eating takeout.
-Ethnic is fine, though see note below about Koh Samui
I searched the archives under at&t, pac bell and cirque and all I could find were some recommendations from 2007 and advice to avoid Momo's and Paragon.
Here's what I could find that might work, is there anything else or do you know if these won't suit my constraints above?
District Bar sounds like it could be really good for us, but I'm concerned about the size of the small plates. Are they enough to make a meal out of or will you blow $100 just to feel full?
Coco500 has a nice menu but the last reviews were from 2009. Is it still good 6 years later? It also doesn't open on Saturdays until 5:30pm which is cutting things a little close unless the service is good at a quick turn around?
Alas Garaje is not open on Saturdays.
I personally love the selections on Marlowe's menu, but it is not very vegetarian-friendly.
I'd rather not go to Koh Samui and the Monkey (it was ok when I went 5 years ago, but I've just had a lot of Thai food recently, including delicious meals at Lers Ros Thai and Ran Kanom Thai).
Thanks in advance!
