San Francisco Dining On Sale

Wendy-san | Jan 6, 200212:37 PM

Did anyone see this full-page ad in today's Chronicle (Datebook section)? Sponsored by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, VISA, and the San Francisco Convention & Visitor's Bureau, about 100 San Francisco restaurants will offer "Chef's Special Three-Course Menus" for lunch ($19.95) and dinner ($29.95) from January 13 - 27 only. I imagine this is to get people into the restaurants at an extremely slow time (and slower than usual because of 9/11).

It's an interesting bit of marketing but the selection of restaurants is puzzling. While these menus could be a real deal at Postrio, Campton Place, and Farallon (all on the list), I can't see taking advantage of this deal at Tia Margarita, Puccini & Pinetti, and the Cliff House (also listed).

Of course the usual disclaimer is also there: "Tax, tip and beverages generally not included. Check with restaurants for offer availability."

What do other chowhounds think of this?
