Dining near Herbst on a Monday

Going to hear Patricia Clarkson next Monday and want to dine well before hand. Zuni and Absinthe are closed and Hayes Street seems a bit over the top. Any places in Hayes Valley that are good? I seem to remember a place with a chalkboard menu but can't remember the name: Bar Crudo? Suggestions welcome one and all.

  1. I was going to say Citizen Cake, but they're closed Mondays too.

    1. BTW I've always liked everything I've had at Hayes Street Grill and it is the semi-official restaurant of City Arts & Lectures -- you might run into Clarkson dining there herself, or see her take-out order going over to the Herbst. (Big thrill, I know.)

      1. re: Nina

        Thanks, I was considering HSG but dinner companion was so-so. I did remember the name of the place I mentioned earlier-Bar Jules. But they are closed on Monday as well.
        We are going to meet at NOPA and then drive one car to Hayes Valley and Herbst.
