I am taking a friend out to celebrate her retirement. She lives near UCSF, but we can go to any neighborhood place. I am thinking there is a great choice in the Mission- not necessarily Latin. Any ideas -cuisine open?
I vote for Zazie in Cole valley, especially if you're going during the week. The food is great, service friendly and they have a nice patio in back. A bit more casual than Zuni, which is a nice option too, but more "neighborhoody".
