Midpriced new places to dine in SF

I am looking for new places to bring friends from the North Bay. We have been to Incanto and Range and enjoyed both and would like any suggestions in that vein. Area is not important, but quality of food is! Has anyone heard good things about the following places?- Senses, Bistro 1689, or Ave. G? Any others? Thanks

      Absolutely, Nopa. Don't know why I didn't think of that earlier.

        Agreed on Farmer Brown -- I was there on Friday night with two other people, we ordered lots of food, and were amazed at the relative cheapness of the bill.

        went again, for about the sixth time.
        it was excellent.

        the bar stocks only spirits and wines from small producers.
        Excellent cocktails. (there is a brand new cocktail menu - not updated on their website)

        Many organic ingredients, supporting local farms.

        I can't recommend it enough.

        Highly recommend:
        squash blossom flatbread
        salmon pizza
        coco mole
        riesling by the glass


        1. If you're looking for something new, try Terzo. The room is beautiful and simple, the food is prepared with care, and the wine list looks good (and the Sobon Estate cab we had was very nice and well priced). I wouldn't recommend it to a tourist whose never been to SF, but I can heartily recommend it to locals who have been to a lot of the best mid-range places and are looking for somewhere new (I would also not recommend Range or Incanto to tourists, though they're both perfectly good restaurants). I think if you like Range you'll have a good chance of enjoying Terzo.

              It is owned by the Rose's Cafe / Rose Pistola group.
