Looking for very good Friday lunch

I'm always looking for good restaurants in SF (meaning good food, decor service, organic local etc) which serve lunch, not in the downtown area. I'd prefer a place that doesn't limit their lunch menu to salads and sandwiches, I'd like to see at least some of the dinner offerings, or at least the appetizer/small plate option to be interesting. In particular I'd love to find one doing Asian fusion for an upcoming lunch with a friend. Can you help?

  1. Have you been to the Slanted Door in the Ferry Building? Fab!
    Also I love Hotei on 9th and Judah for their wonderful Japanese noodle soups (closed Tuesday)
    Zazie (french-esque) on Cole in Cole Valley is always awsome, not asian but their BLT is not to be missed and they have much more than soups and salads.
    And I think that Luna Park on Valencia actually does a good lunch.
    Hmm, lunch asian fusion, tough one. Anyone???

      2. Beating my dead-horse on loving lunch at Samovar in the Yerba Buena gardens (different menu than the Castro location!!!!) Not open for dinner at all but stunning variety of ethnic cuisines from Moroccan to Chinese or Japanese to Russian. Their sampler luncheons are better than small plates because they are all in tune with the tea being served. Geee... think I'll head there today myself!

        1. A16 meets all your criteria except Asian fusion.
