3 for 100?

  • f

We're 3 business guys looking for a great dinner in SF for about $100. Is it possible? Maybe a BYOB. And Sunday night. What are the possibilities?

  1. There's no such thing as a BYOB in California. You can bring your own to a place that has a license (most likely they'll charge corkage), but (in theory) a place that does not have a license is not supposed to allow alcohol to be consumed on the premises.

    You question is pretty broad -- can you be more specific about what type of cuisine, dining experience, neighborhood, etc. you'd consider?

      Ok, forget about BYOB - how about a spot in San Francisco (any neighborhood) with seafood? We're not concerned with atmosphere or choice locations - just great food at bargain prices. A place to discover!

        Try Zoya in Hayes Valley. Deffinitely a spot waiting to be discovered. Their menu is small (as well as the restaurant), but nice with several seafood items. Food and service are excellent.

      1. Firefly, an excellent restaurant in the Noe Valley, has a very good $34 prix fixe deal Sun-Thurs. You can order any appetizer, entree and dessert on the menu plus coffee or tea for $34. They serve many good wines by the glass. Here's a link to this week's menu:

          With corkage, tax, and tip, that would total close to $150.

        2. Shalimar is notoriously BYOB.
