Seems like I may have asked this before, but I did a good search before posting this. :)
My BFF for the past 34 years is relocating 3,000 miles away, so there will be three of us going out to dinner and spending some time there. She's staying w/her sister, so we can't go to her place afterwards, and the other two of us have family, so "lingering" at home will not be convenient.
We've done this dinner several times at Left Bank in Menlo Park, always on a weeknight, and it has worked out. We order generously from several appetizers through dessert and coffee (for those of you who have read about my frugal posts, this is something out of the ordinary for me) and tip that way as well, but we do stay for about 3-4 hours (basically dinner time till closing).
Since we live in SF/SSF and short on time this time, we're trying to find a place closer to us. Our first criteria is the ability to linger (and closing around 10), and the second is easy free parking. Any ideas? I don't want to say that money isn't an issue, so we can't do Gary Danko for example.
