Where for chilled brunch?

I am coming to SF shortly for my first trip, and am compiling a list of restaurants.
Can anyone recomend somewhere for Sunday Brunch? It doesn't matter where in the city, I'm happy to travel. We will have been out very late Sat night, so really want something chilled with a local atmosphere, good food choices, and great drinks. We may need a cure.
It should also have simple food options like a burger, as my travel companion is not too adventurous.

  1. Sorry but it the language thing. Do you mean chilled as in salad or chilled as in relaxed?

    1. Zuni's pretty mellow at brunch. Local favorite, great bar, and the best burger in town.

          Mellow, local atmosphere, good food, and _great_drinks_ limits things quite a bit if by "great drinks" you are thinking Bloody Mary's, Mimosa's and the like.

            SF has enough great restaurants with great bars that it's quite doable, especially with no restrictions on neighborhood.

            Absinthe would also work.
