Seeking: Great food, casual atmosphere

Fidelixi | Nov 13, 2002 06:03 PM

My wife and I (mid-30's) are going to be visiting from LA in late December,

I am obsessed with food (and thus this search) but desperately want to do something other than hunt down restaurants for the next 5 weeks (!). I love simple, country cooking that allows the natural flavors to sing (Zuni, Chez Panisse) and I also love everything from Foie Gras to...? I was originally looking at places like Fifth Floor, Masa's, but upon checking out their web sites they seem a bit... er, stiff for my taste. Ideally we want a place with warmth and terrific/attentive food and genuine service.

Any of the places I mentioned are possibilities but please help! Thanks so much...

We will be staying, I think, at the Maxwell Hotel though we will have a car and are happy to drive but nonetheless would probably like to stay in SF (rather than going to the East Bay, for instance).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
