Pesce or SPQR?
Food-loving brother coming in from TX this weekend. Pesce or SPQR? Is Pesce 'fun'?
SPQR's food is miles above Pesce. I have eaten at both a few times and I wouldn't bother with pesce again unless someone else wanted to go and was paying. Not "fun" or wacky though. Do you mean fun as in waiters who crack jokes or menus that are silly? or interiors that are fun? I think Caffe Sport for lunch is fun b/c the waiters are old school and the interior is wacky & colorful plus the food is like nothing else I can think of off the top of my head in SF.
I haven't been to SPQR, but I have been to Pesce, and I wasn't under the impression they're supposed to be in the same league. The only dish I have any recollection of was the peas with bacon drowned in olive oil. It's pretty small and cramped in there, with really awkward chairs, so that dampened my personal fun factor.
