3 for 100?

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?

    Shalimar is notoriously BYOB.

      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.

          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.
