We are eloping in SF at City Hall on a Monday afternoon (3:30). Looking for place to have early dinner that isn't extremely far (though we could take a cab) that has following qualifications: a strong pour from bartender, great seafood and/or steak, romantic, not extremely expensive (i.e. no more than 18-20 per entree). We are not finicky eaters at all. NOTE: I don't want a "casual patrons in shorts" joint.
Hoping it's near a swanky old bar that is not bourgeois or frat or cliche (see beauty bar sorts). We are staying at Le Meridian in financial district, so nothing too far from that area if at all possible.
Also, sub question: best baker near financial district to buy on the spot a tiny cake to share that night. Best coffee in/around financial district.
Thanks ahead of time.
