Expense Account Asian in SF?
Will be staying in Union Square area for three nights this week. Coming from the midwest I am down for some serious Chinese, Thai or Vietnamese. Who are the top players?
Serious expense account Chinese -
Tommy Toys, followed by Shanhai 1930 (Tommy Toys go for the 6-course signature dinner - includes lobster and peking duck!)
Bong Su and Slanted Door (I actually prefer Bong Su but most prefer Slanted Door - Slanted Door has an amazing view for an out-of-towner, looking out at the Bay Bridge)
Expense account Asian and serious Asian are not necessarily the same. If the focus is on spending money, try Silks at the Mandarin Oriental.
I think you'd eat better at Jai Yun and Thai House Express than at most expense-account places.
Thanks for the thoughts, Gary and Robert have good points. My point is I am looking for serious food, within a moderate cab ride of Union Square where price isn't the issue. This is not for "entertaining" anyone other than myself but a nice dish of fresh abalone or the like is in the cards.
