I am a Boston hound visiting SF for the first time. We'll be visiting family and friends in Palo Alto (Stanford college students) who are not particularly chowish. They are willing to try anything, but are not likely to do much research and make reservations.
So, it's all up to us, and we need your help.
I am looking for 1 lunch on friday just for the my husband and me (we are thinking Canteen), and 2 dinners and 1 lunch for 4-6 people (maybe Range and Aziza for dinner, not sure what to do about lunch). Range looks great, but I am worried about the noise level. Do you think it will be ok if we go at 6:30ish?
Any opinions of those? How far in advance would I need to reserve? Other suggestions (particularly in Palo Alto or nearby)?
Thanks so much!
