Cancer surviror - Dine about town recommendation needed

My mother survived lung cancer last year. To celebrate the New Year, I will be taking her on a Hornblower cruise this weekend. I'd also like to take her out to dinner in the City later in January.

Which of the better Dine About Town restraunts are located within two or three blocks of a BART Station? I am unable to drive into San Francisco so proximity to BART is essential. TIA

  1. I might add that she is not a fan of fish or steak.

      1. In order of preferance:

        1. One Market

        2. Americano

        3. Seasons at the Four Seasons

        Keep in mind these are sample menus and from the positive post above on this year's lunch at One Market, many restaurants change the menu, especially those relying on seasonal ingrediants.

        One Market has always had positive mentions.

        I liked the ambiance the year I went to Seasons. Get a cocktail at the bar to celebrate. Wonderful bar snacks. Service is top notch. The food is certainly better than Hornblower.

        I haven't been to Americano but it would be high on my list if I was doing DAT this year. It is near One Market, so if you reserved there and the DAT menu that night was fish and steak, you could easily trot over to the Americano and see what they were serving that night. The usual dat thing though is either chicken/salmon or chicken/pasta at most places.

        1. Thank you for your kind responses. Please try to include which BART station for any of your recommendations. I realize that One Market and Americano are close to the Embarcadero Station.

          Thanks again. And Happy New Year!
