I plan on seeing a concert at the Masonic Auditorium on California & Taylor Streets, so I'm looking at some recommendations for restaurants nearby. Some that I remember that are close by are the ones at the 3 hotels (Ritz, Marc Hopkins, Fairmont) as well as Charles Nob Hill (though that's a bit too fancy for me).

Is there still a restaurant where the old Vanessi's used to be in the condominium complex next door to the Masonic? And then there's Rue Lepic at the bottom of the hill ( I never see anything written about this place).

So, anyone have recommendations for a not-too-fancy pre-concert dinner nearby?
