Palace of Fine Arts Area

We will be attending a couple of SF Jazz performances in May & June at the Palace of Fine Arts. Do you have any dining recommendation for that area? Preferably within walking distance if possible. Hot dog stands included.

      Second both of these. For cheaper fare, I like Pluto's and Dragonwell. If Chestnut Street is too far, Baker Street Bistro and Liverpool Lil's are solid choices right up the street.

        cafe maritime. taste of the himalaya.

      2. We recently had one of the best meals ever at Alegrias, Lombard between Webster and Fillmore, a mostly tapas restaurant we've patronized for years.

        1. The Presidio Social Club ( is also nearby. We had the Gruyere Cheese Toast for an app, the Mac & Cheese, Kobe Beef Sliders and mini chocolate cupcakes with a mini vanilla shake.

            Taste of the Himalayas is also good, but the service can be very slow
