OK - I don't get to the expensive places very often (if ever) but my parents are coming in town and we need one special dinner in SF. Their tastes tend toward the French side of things - anything with foie gras in it is worth a try! (Though they were unimpressed by the French Laundry on two occassions) They are fans of Chez Panisse from years ago, but want to try something new.
If price is not an object, but incredible distinctive flavors and preparations are important, where should we go? Without having been to either, what I've heard would indicate Danko or 5th Floor. We've been to Aqua and thought it was very good but not on par with the best in NY. Appreciate any comments or suggestions.
