Decent mid-scale dinner around Golden Gate Park?
I'm going out there over the weekend, gonna see if the Bison are awake and sneak a peek at the SF Dream Home that's being raffled off above the Forest Knolls area or round abouts. Any recommendations? That's one area of the city I have not properly explored.
It may be over your budget, and I haven't been there myself, but Moss Room gets good reviews. Its on my to-do list. Can't get any closer to the park.
Chouchou is another one that has been on my list of places to check out. You'll be near there. But I notice that recent reports have been mixed. Seems like there was a new chef a year or so ago who did not start out strong. Anyone have any recent updates to share about Chouchou?

Park Chow is good. If you are looking for something different, there is also:
Koo for sushi and small plates, a bit pricey but much better than Hotei/Ebisu.
Lime Tree for cheap, spicy Singaporean inflected food.
Yummy Yummy for Vietnamese (Chinese-ified)
also Cafe Gratitude if you want to try raw...
Just a heads-up that the raffle house is on Hugo street - Inner Sunset, not Forest Knolls - is that what they're advertising? Either way, it's gorgeous and you have MANY great options for food. Park Chow is great, you can also try Naan-and-Curry for the best cheap indian, Plutos for salad or Yumma's for falafel in a beautiful garden patio. I live and eat very well in this neighborhood!
Thanks for the heads up...I wasn't totally sure where the raffle house was, going off the scuttlebutt. Glad you pointed me in the right direction!
Park Chow is sounding like the spot, since I've never been, but maybe more trips to the bison will be required. Is the Naan and Curry the same as the chain (Berkeley, Oakland) or a different place with the same name?
