A friend and her bf are staying over at Jack London Square Sat night. They like Italian, Thai, seafood and California but have non eclectic tastes. Any recommendatins on where they should eat within walking distance
I second the Soizic recommendation. I find Yoshi's, Scott's, and Kincaid's yucky and overpriced. I would also consider heading into Oakland Chinatown, which is not far away at all. Phnom Penh is yummy. It's Cambodian and should be no challenge for folks who like Thai.
At the risk of reviving the dreaded "best BBQ" debate, I rather like Everett & Jones on Broadway. Beyond that, your friends will not be that far from Oakland Chinatown, which opens up a huge number of possibilities.
