Dinner near the Fillmore Auditorium

We're going to the Fillmore this Saturday night and wonder where we should eat. What's good? Close? Not super fancy? Thanks, Lilla

  1. How close? One of my favorite restaurants in the area is Fresca, but it's several blocks up closer to Fillmore and California. I actually just took a friend for lunch, and she said it was her favorite meal of her entire visit.

    There's also a Korean restaurant on the corner of Fillmore and Geary, not more than a block from the theater. I still have not been, but a Korean friend of mine took her mom and they both said it was fine though not amazing.

      My go-to pre-Fillmore show is Pizza Inferno on Fillmore St. Good selection of beer on tap, individual pizzas and a good pre show vibe.

    2. 1300 Fillmore is one of our favorite restaurants. Fun, glamorous setting, diverse crowd, and delicious soul- and southern- inspired food.

        I second 1300 - the decor and atmosphere are wonderful, the food is creative and tasty, and it's really close to the venue!
