I need some advice from the food experts I have come to rely on for all of my travels plans. I have a trip planned for early March and have filled in 3 dining spots -- lunch at Slanted Door, dinner at Foreign Cinema and dinner at Quince -- and am looking for the answer to that last piece for Sat night. Some have suggested Aqua, Absinthe and Canteen; but Aqua looks like more of the same and Absinthe had some review concerns (service issues, etc).
Is there one spot I should not miss and should try to get a table at before it's too late? (I tried Gary Danko and am on the wait list, also Ive done amazing sushi in the area, as well as French Laundry and Chez Panisse on a previous trip, so I am looking for San Fran local spots).
