Anthing Interesting But TADDICH in the Area??? Tomorrow Night

oakjoan Oct 9, 2006 07:37 PM

We're probably going to take Brooklyn friends to Taddich Grill tomorrow night, but don't want to miss anything newish or undiscoveredish in that area. How is Rubicon these days? I haven't been in ages.

We're willing to walk some.

    We had dinner at Rubicon a couple of months ago and it was outstanding. Might stop in at Aqua (next door to Tadich) for a cocktail at the bar, very nice. Kokkari is near by if Greek sounds good.

      I don't think there's anything new in the neighborhood other than some lunch-only spots.

        I have not been but I have been hearing raves for Silks in the Mandarin Hotel.

          I always liked Silks. Do they have a new chef? Are these recent raves?

            Recent as in the past 6 months. Not that Bauer is the end-all-be-all but he gave them 3& 1/2 stars. None of my friends have printed anything so I'll link to his review. I am never sure what the linking policy is anymore; some posts remain up and some get deleted. Here goes nothing: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article...

              Here's an enthusiastic report from a few months ago:

            Jeanty at Jack's is not new, but I'm still stoking a taste memory of a wonderful short rib dish I had there several months ago. Very reliable, good service (but ask for downstairs seating, much more lively and brasserie-like). Not much resemblance to Tadich, if that's what you're seeking.
