Looking for a spot for a long late lunch an easy walk from California & Market. Requirements:
- open all afternoon
- good food with choices for a fish/vegetarian
- good beer and good wine
- halfway comfortable and good for conversation
- moderate prices
In the past we've gone to Slanted Door, which is pushing the top end of our price range, and L'Osteria dal Forno.
Other possibilities I've thought of are 21st Amendment and Cafe Niebaum-Coppola. Piperade's out since they close at 3:00.
