Food Options Around Opera Plaza Theater

I am headed to Opera Plaza Theater on Friday to catch a movie. I was wondering what tasty food options are within walking distance. I am going with 3 other friends. We are fairly adventurous and love all types of cuisines. Not looking to break the bank - so $50 or less per head including drinks.

Thanks for your help!

  1. Looking at the map, it appears your best bet within reasonable walking distance would be Indigo Restaurant. It's not mentioned much, but notices seem to be very positive. With a $33.95 prix fixe dinner and NO corkage fee, you can't go too far wrong.

    687 McAllister St., San Francisco, CA 94102

    1. Bodega Bistro and Turtle Tower are four blocks away, Thai House Express and A La Turka are seven.

      I ate at Indigo a few years ago and while the food was good it seemed very generic and trend-driven. The menu still looks that way. Seared ahi tuna, braised lamb shank, warm chocolate cake--what, no miso-glazed black cod?

        But they do have Wild Costa Rican Mahi-Mahi ... that's a new one ... at least the Costa Rican part.

        Anyway, looking at their website which has an annoying design, I just wanted to note that there is no corkage fee if you bring your own wine ... which is a question that gets asked on the board from time to time.

          I mentioned the NO (capitalized) corkage policy when I suggested Indigo above, but I guess I failed to add the qualifier "if you bring your own wine." (And I'll refrain from any Polish jokes here).

            I think only the French Laundry charges corkage when you don't bring your own wine.

              Read it too fast. Was more interested in the links.

        2. There is a decent sushi restaurant in the Plaza. Opera Plaza Sushi.
