We (a family of 2 adults, 1 very adventurous 9 year old) will be in San Francisco next month. We already have a reservation for Cafe Claude, but are looking for one more place. We'll be staying at Union Square, but don't mind a shortish taxi ride for great food. I don't eat pork; we love big bold flavors. We get great Szechuan and Indian where we live, but would love to find something Vietnamese or really great Italian, or just a wonderful but not stuffy restaurant. Price isn't an issue. We like to relax with wine over dinner, but don't want a 3 hour meal. Thanks very much in advance for any suggestions.
