I'm a bit out of touch with the SF food scene having lived overseas for a few years. I'm hosting a small lunch with two good girl friends on a Friday before bridesmaid shopping in or near Union Square. I'd like to find a spot with good food, somewhat festive atmosphere (good for girls lunch), cocktails and/or decent wine. Let's keep it under $250 with drinks, so anything goes except fine dining I guess. The very few places that interest me near Union Square don't seem to do weekday lunch, and I'm struggling. Before throwing in the towel and deciding to meet in another neighborhood and then move to Union Square for shopping -- any ideas from the board here? The current lead contender is Khin Khao (good food, good drinks), though I was hoping for something that felt a bit more atmospheric to set the tone for our shopping day.
