i am trying to nail down a post-alcatraz dinner dest in the mission for sat night. my top two choices, based on what i've read, are farolito and la taqueria. i know these are both very casual places, so i am going to have to do some convincing of the others in my group to see my way. anyhow, how would you compare the two, food and ambience? is there somewhere i can see their menus?

in case i do not get my way, is there a less casual mission place you would recommend that also has good food. i guess i can always get my burrito fix after the bars. bruno's for jazz, oh yeah...

again, i apologize if i am rehashing old discussions here. but i promise to contribute a full report on my eats in sf, just as i did on the chicago board. i will give back, i swear!

btw, the burrito is probably the one thing in san fran i am looking forward to the most. i'm psyched!
