My wife and I are going to be in the bay area for the holidays. It will be the first time since having a baby that we will have been able to enjoy a nice dinner together and I'm looking for any recommendations that you might have.
I'm aiming at spending between $150 - 300.
Other restaurants in SF that we've enjoyed in the past: Zuni, Chez Panisse, Cotogna, Beretta. This doesn't have to reflect those, but I thought I'd provide for reference.
Here are some options that I've considered so far: Benu, Quince, Boulevard, Canteen, Atelier Crenn, Son & Daughters and Commonwealth.
Oh, and my wife does LOVE a beautifully plated dish.
