Need a REALLY amazing, young, trendy restaurant to host 22nd birthday for a gorgeous girl!!


I'm planning a birthday dinner for my best friend for about 10 - 12 22 year old girls in San Francisco on Friday Feb 22nd and I need help finding the perfect place!! We haven't decided where we want to go out after dinner (something else I need help with!) but I do know exactly what we like and don't like!

We definitely enjoy finer quality food but also care a lot about atmosphere and a upbeat vibe. Something fun yet refined and upscale. We have all been going to school all over the country (LA, NYC, SD etc.) and haven't spent enough time in San Francisco which is right in our own backyard. Price isn't of much concern and at this point, neither is location. I don't want anything too stuffy, old or boring!

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    1. Perhaps Bar Tartine or Andalu?

      3198 16th St., San Francisco, CA 94103

      Bar Tartine
      561 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

      1. Have you been to Foreign Cinema? Leaves you in a good neighborhood to go out in after.

        1. NOPA sounds like a good fit. Only problem is that they don't take reservations for large parties. That may have changed though?

            The first two places that came to mind was Frisson & Cortez. Frisson because of it interior (dining room is round). Cortez for plates to share perfect for young ladies... great cocktails apparently too.
