any thoughts on a special dining place which is interesting, not expensive and stuffy, hole in the wall type of place which will make someone feel enchanted and special?

  1. Any particular type of food?

      1. What would qualify as not expensive?

        1. You want an inexpensive, interesting hole in the wall? I'd say Tagine (though I havent heard lately if they reopened) or maybe Citrus Club or Golden Mandalay?

          Really, it's impossible to say unless you give an actual price range.

          1. If you're down in the Noe Valley end of town, I'd say La Ciccia. Small, informal but with pretty special food & wine. http://www.laciccia.com/

            1. I just had my second really good meal at Globe (Pacific and Battery). Had a great time a couple of months ago so I suggested it for a group dinner this week. I can recommend the oysters, any of the pizzas, the spaghetti (I know, sounds stupid, but it's REALLY good spaghetti). Had a wild nettle risotto last time that would have been perfection if it had been hotter. Small but decent wine list. The osso buco looked good but nobody at my table would share and they all cleaned their plates. The most discriminating diner at my table said, "this was very, very, very, very good. This is a special restaurant."
