I am new in town and need some help. My husband and I are meeting friends in the city for dinner next Thursday (we're in San Mateo). I was asked to choose a restaurant for dinner. I made reservations at Canteen, but the prices may be pushing the limit for a casual weeknight dinner. The friend we're meeting lives in SoMa, so I was looking in that area, but we're flexible.
So my question is: what's your favorite place to eat with entrees priced under $20? Bonus points if the restaurant takes reservations.
Thanks in advance for your tips!
