We're coming out for a week in mid-July, and I need some comments on my initial choices. We like Delfina in SF, and love neighborhood and ethnic places we can't get in CA, so one meal is devoted to Katz's or 2nd Avenue---who has the best pastrami?
1st night in is Saturday, there will be 8 of us. We'd like a good meal, and a great neighborhood to wander around in afterwards. Do any of these work: Stanton Social Club, Apizz, Lavagna, Barbetta, Lupa? Need to try to pin down reservations soon.
Rest of the week, there will usually be 5 of us, so thought we'd try the Mermaid Inn, Barbuto, Pylos.
If we do get theater tickets, Marseille, or Osteria al Doge.
For lunch, Inoteca.
For outdoors, if the heat wave holds, Arte Italian, Hallo Berlin.
Any favorites in this group? We'd love to be able to hear ourselves talk, but food is probably more critical. Have we missed a fabulous meal?
