Dinner near the Golden Gate Theater
Farmer Brown, the new darling of the tenderloin opened up on Turk & Market. See my earlier review: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...
Across the street down 6th is Tu Lan (yum for the #17 with pork kebab, noodles & imperial roll)
Louisiana Fried Chicken just opened next door to Tu Lan, too.
Original Joes is within a - very dodgy - block, up Taylor.
Very old time Italian, huge portions. Nothing very modern - menu, food prep, decor & tuxedo'd staff - but it's a place I really rather enjoy. Old time San Francisco, with a mixed crowd - on/off duty cops, city hall politicos and their ear benders, young and old.
Family run, and a nice family.
