pre-movie munch @ Metreon?

8:15 movie, gonna be in the neighborhood, where do I chow? got an hour, maybe a little more, happy to live well, happy to go cheap, but not down market. bistro? upscale pizza? just want the food to make me glad I didn't boil pasta at home.

  1. I'd say Pazzia at 3rd and Folsom next to Bong Su - good pizzas and pastas.

        Bong Su is nice, but pricey, and you probably won't get in & out in less than an hour on a Friday night.
        I'd save it for when you have more time (and a reservation).

    1. There's the Thirsty Bear for decent tapas, on Howard near third.

        A second on Thristy Bear. Always enough room to get a seat.

        1. LuLu around the corner on Folsom.

          1. Weird. My previous post got deleted, but I'll add again that Lulu/Azie are close by, as is Oola. They could be great for cocktails and appetizers, but a dinner reservation may be tough.
            Don't forget Chaat Cafe across from Pazzia, too.
