    Any preferred area? Type of atmosphere? What's "reasonable" to you? If I take non-ethnic literally that eliminates most places, so can you be more specific?

        Chenery Park in Glen Park would fit the bill nicely.

      Oola and Foreign Cinema are places that I like to take my teenage brother. The food is good and he really digs the scene at both places.

        Just had dinner two nights ago at Oola witha fussy eater - not a teenager, but she sometimes acts like one :)
        The food was terrific and very well-received. If you decide to order small plates, it works very well, because you can sample around the menu and order seconds on the more popular dishes. I have to say their ribs are some of the best I've had in the city. Location-wise, it's very centrally-located, just down the street from Yerba Buena Gardens.

        You could try Lime (on Market Street in the Castro). I took my very picky cousin (who doesn't eat ethnic/exotic foods or most meat items) there and she found quite a few things on the menu she could eat and enjoyed. They have mini grilled cheese sandwiches, mini burgers, chicken skewers, and the like, and cute desserts (like cheesecake lollipops and mini cupcakes).

          I am sorry but Lime would not be suitable for a 15 yr. old and I am sure the people there would not want a kid around.

          Emmy's Spaghetti Shack is a fun, young crowd with great italian for cheap. (9.50 for a huuuuge plate of spaghetti and meatballs)

                Yes, but the wait can be long & uncomfortable. Be sure to get there early (6pm or before), or be prepared to wait. They don't take reservations and are cash-only, too.
