we don't get into the city very much any more and want to take our out of town guests somewhere nice but not stuffy, relatively hip (we live in the burbs now so need a fix of urban style). we all like our cocktails so somewhere with a strong drink and wine menu would be great.
open to different kinds of food, price point medium to medium high. there will be six of us who don't get together often and actually want to be able to talk and hear each other so crazy loud places are out.
ideal neighborhood would be mission/potrero/hayes valley probably but open on that too. sorry for the vague request, but there you have it...thanks very much in advance!
