Seeking a dinner spot that meets all the requirements -- am I doomed?

S U | Dec 1, 2006 06:55 PM

I'm planning to have dinner with a friend tomorrow night, but he's a tad on the picky side -- not about food but about waiting for a table. (last dinner I tried to plan @ Charanga, we arrived around 8:30 and were told the wait would be about 30 mins; I had no problem with that but he practically threw a fit.)

We plan to park @ St. Mary's garage and walk to the dinner location
(no more than 6 blocks otherwise he might have another meltdown and he's insisted on this specific garage)
it will be around 7pm and he doesn't want to wait
max price for entrees @ $25
and no american, californian, asian, italian, or middle eastern (looking for something different).

Our other option is to stick close to his place around 28th & Quintara (again with the same requirements).

I really want to go try Andrew Jaegger's place, but its a bit far to walk...

Basically, I'm trying to salvage any hope of a chowish dinner tomorrow; and I don't want to end up at some crappy place like we did last time after he nixed Charanga.
