Relaxed Restaurants on Polk Street or Filmore?
Looking for a tasty/interesting spot for dinner with a buddy. I live in Cole Valley, he wants to escape Cow Hollow so we've decided on the Nob Hill-ish area.
Ideally somewhere with minimal drama, mid-range prices and, most importantly, great grub.
some of my nob hill faves:
Italian style tapas and seafood - Polk btw Vallejo and Green
fantastic homemade pasta - Pacific btw Hyde and Larkin
I've heard great things about Tablespoon, right down the street from Pesce

I second Pesce. I was there a couple of weeks ago, and had some excellent reasonably priced italian seafood dishes. Dont miss the black olive gnocchi, and definitely get a couple oyster shooters. They are so fresh and delicious. The place is on the smaller side, great staff, lively, but not too loud, and a mellow crowd.
There are a couple more restaurants on that street that also look really good...I think already mentioned above.
I also really enjoy the Elite Cafe on fillmore st. It is a cajun inspired menu, and very goog. They have amazing "home made" sodas and cocktails (actually so does Pesce now that I think about it) and the best deviled eggs I have ever had. I've been there for dinner and brunch, and go back regularly for the special treats on their menu.
Tajine. Low key Moroccan on Polk near Pine. No alcohol last time I was there, but okay to bring a bottle of wine.
