My former roommate and I are meeting up in November to celebrate her birthday. We lived in SF more years ago than I want to admit. We're now mid-30s, and I'm looking for recommendations for an interesting foodie dinner destination that won't break the bank, won't force romance down our throats, or make us feel ancient. We're staying by Lower Nob Hill, but as former residents we know the city well and are willing to go to almost any neighborhood. We don't want to hop across the bay, however, given time constraints. Thanks in advance!
