Pac Heights Recommendations?

I'm heading to the Queen Anne for a little 'in-town' getaway next weekend and I'm looking for a great little spot close to it for dinner. Other than Quince ... any great little 'gem' I should try?

      Thanks Robert-- I had checked out that post. Been to several of those already... hopefully looking for something new. Thanks again though.

        SPQR's fairly new and just over the hill on Fillmore.

          You're just north of Japantown and all the sushi and Japanese food spots there - Kiss, Ino, and Kappa. For special occasions, Kappa has a killer omakase menu if you call in advance to book.

          There's the newly re-opened Cafe Majestic with Chron's 2008 Rising Star Chef, Ian Begg.

          On Fillmore Street, SPQR and Fresca (Peruvian).

          Kappa Japanese Restaurant

      2. Have you already done Bushi Tei, on Post at Laguna? It is billed as French Cal fusion.
        I think it has been criticized on this board, but I have dined their about a half dozen times, and always enjoyed it.

        Here is their website:

          Thanks guys. I was leaning towards hitting Japan town so these are great.

        2. 1300 Fillmore is really good. It's only a few month's old, but has caught on very well and has become one of our favorites.

          We really like SOQR, but their tiny space and no reservations policy makes eating there tricky. I think the long waits at SPQR have ended up being a boon to Florio right next door, a solid bistro, but not particularly memorable.

            I'd second the recommendation on 1300 Fillmore. Different and delicious food and (for our segregated city) a diverse crowd -- we've been four times, always enjoyed it.

              Pretty mixed reports on the food at 1300. See the links from its Places entry:
