A rare night out

Dana B Sep 24, 2007 04:13 PM

Now that we have a baby, going out for dinner is a rare and special treat.
We have a babysitter this saturday, and can't wait to see a movie, in a movie theater - wow, what a concept.

Want to go somewhere yummy afterwards. Doesn't need to be fancy or special, but the food needs to be good and different than what I would cook at home.

Dying to go to Incanto but would prefer to stay on the north side of the city, closer to home.

Last places out were:
Kabuto sushi

Any recs?
I could come up with something but would love to get some input....on a "must try - will love" place.

    Have you checked opentable.com to see which places still have space available?

      no - wanted to get some recs first.
      we're going late, so hopefully will have options

      Have you tried Canteen?

        On the North side check to see if you can get into A16 or
        Bar Crudo more dowtown

          Aziza is very close to the north end of the city.

          I love Canteen. Definitely worth the trek.

            A second vote for Palmetto.
            Also, Terzo at Union & Steiner is divine.

              Kabuto changed hands two years ago and quality reportedly went downhill. Few reports since.

                I am very fond of Pesce at the moment, it just seems to strike the right notes for me - small plates, tasty morsels, casual and neighborhoodie.

                If you're going to the Kabuki for a movie, then dinner at Kiss is a delight.

                  Thanks to all...
                  Ended up with reservations at Bar Tartine.
                  (that post on chowhound about falling in love with all things tartine was a great advertisement) A little bit of a shlep but hopefully we are up for it.
                  Haven't been to KISS yet and that is close by so a nice alternative. thanks for the recs.
