Decided to bring the family (8 and 10) with us this trip, so we need excellent, but unromantic, dinner suggestions for Valentine's Day and also possible latish dining spot on our arrival on Thursday evening.We are staying at the Omni. Probably looking at dinner at around 8:30 or 9:00.
Would like something walking distance on Thursday evening -- does Tadich Grill take reservations? Is Plouf a good option? or other places in the alley? In the past, I have hoofed it over to Piperade (love that place). Have business dinner Friday evening at 500 Jackson. Saturday morning will be dim sum as usual. That leaves us with Saturday night, Valentine's Day, with family. I don't want to ruin anyone's romantic evening, but I also don't want to be stuck at the Stinking Rose or some other "family" friendly restaurant -- my son's favorite foods are sweetbreads and calamari. Prefer American, French or Italian -- they are not big spice fans so Indian/Thai/Vietnamese are out. Thoughts?
