My husband has found himself saddled with finding a place for his mineral club's annual Christmas party. So we are looking for something in SF or nearby area where a group of 20-25 could have dinner, preferably in a private room because they always have a silent auction etc. The type of cuisine could vary, but price needs to be fairly moderate -- per person charge in the $25-35 range. The last few years, the dinner has been on a Friday in Pacifica, at Pacifica del Mare -- but people have voiced interest in a new place this time. Any ideas? Personally, we'd prefer a place in the city, but are open to other ideas.
