Need to find a good restaurant for my way too expensive bottle of wine

Hey hounds-

I'm a cheap wine drinker. I can appreciate good wines, but typically if I spend more than $20 on a bottle it's a special occasion. Recently my girlfriend and I received a really nice bottle of wine as a gift and we would like to take it to a great restaurant.

Sounds simple, right?

Here's the catch- it's a big red wine (Joseph Phelps Backus 2006 Cabernet), and my g/f is a pescetarian. So she only eats fish and I'll eat anything. Obviously I'd like to pair it with a fantastic steak- or something along those lines- and she needs a protein option that would work with the wine as well (seared tuna maybe? I'm stumped).

We are open to any budget (this will be our one big meal for a while), but we need a place in San Francisco. We are also open to any cuisine type, but personally I'd like a place that cooks a great piece of beef.

Many thinks for any and all ideas!

-Jon
