        Honeymoon layover and dinner with no spending limit? It's a tough reservation to get, but I'd hit Gary Danko.

            Gary danko is, if my ever failing memory serves me, the former exec. chef at the Ritz Carlton dining room. The someilier is a much sought after young woman that believes in food friendly wine. This place will soon be on the map as world class.

              There was a recent SF Chronicle article re: Danko. Apparently he is a favorite disciple and student of Madeleine Kamman.

            Masa's, Aqua, Postrio, Acquerello, La Folie if they don't want to leave the city. In that order of preference.
