Best food for one saturday night in San Fran, followed by most amazing breakfast in the city

adamandbear Aug 5, 2009 03:31 PM

Wife and I are flying in for one night anniversary celebration. Looking to have a late meal after Kathy Griffin show (starts at 7) thinking dinner around 9. I want this to be a memorable night, followed by an amazing breakfast in the morning. i'm sure everyone will throw out Coi or slanted door, but I'm open to any suggestions as long as it will blow our minds. thanks everyone....
show is at davis symphony hall, and we dont have reservations for a hotel yet (so I'm open to hotel suggestions as well.)

              That was not in the original post.

              For the OP, go to Canteen or Bar Tartine for Sunday brunch, those are my favorite brunches in SF.

                Yes, the OP edited his post...why do some people have to call others out instead of offering suggestions?

                For dinner near Davis there's both Absinthe and Jardiniere within walking distance.

                To Jasmine's list I would add Foreign Cinema for Sunday brunch - it definitely has a 'special event' feel to it and really wowed some out of town visitors I took there recently.

        I find it interesting that there is no really good Sunday Brunch place in the city. By really good, I mean something like Brennan's in New Orleans......


        What comes closest?

            But, are there any candidates in the same vein? The Garden Court at the Palace Hotel has the right kind of ambiance (in spades), but I've never seen anyone swoon for the food.
