fun, semi-trendy, won't break the bank

I'm looking for a great meal for the nite I take out my hosts next month at a kind of "happening" spot. Prefer Calif/new American but interesting Italian or a little fusion if good. Nothing overly French. Should have a fun bar and vibe on a Fri. nite. We went to Lulu I think 6 years ago and that was fine. Indigo wine dinner sounds interesting but does the place have the right feel? What about Clementine or is that French? Destino might be a good place for a quicker meal or does that fit the bill? Is Delfina worthy of the hype? Any other suggestions in the $15-29 entree range, any area of town? I read the prix fixe threads and those are helpful and I've already gotten some great info on bakeries, bahn mi, etc. but need that one yummy, fun meal. Thanks in advance.
