Need a restaurant near Yerba Buena Center

We're going to see the Smuin Ballet tomorrow at the Yerba Buena Center at Howard and 3rd Streets in San Francisco, and we would like to have lunch before or dinner after the show. Any restaurant recommendations? The Yerba Buena Center website lists many restaurants within walking distance, but I don't know which ones are good. Thanks to anyone who can help us out.

      1. Samovar Tea Lounge (above the waterfall). I LOVE this place. The Moorish tea set is fantastic.

        1. I'd like to ditto nutmeg-- Samovar is wonderful. I think their food gets better and better! And although the YB location is made of glass-- it's not chilly at all.
