Dinner near Orpheum Theater
We're going to see Wicked next Wednesday night and looking for a suggestion for a restaurant near the theater for an excellent pre-show meal. My first thought was Canteen, but their seating times disagree with our babysitter! Because of some time constraints, we would like to walk from restaurant to theater. Any ideas would be appreciated.
I don't have a specific recommendation, but I would suggest that you consider the Hayes Valley neighborhood. There are a number of nice restaurants there (Jardiniere, Absinthe, Hayes Street Grill, Suppenkuche, etc.) to choose from. They are within walking distance of the Orpheum (or at least as close as Canteen), and many of them are quite accustomed to getting people out the door by curtain time, since they cater to people having dinner before the opera, symphony or ballet.
