Pre Theater Dinner

tstrum Aug 22, 2009 09:36 AM

Any good places to dine within walking distance of the Curran Theater? It is on Geary between Stockton and Leavenworth. We are looking for good food, nothing too fancy. Masa's is not our thing!

    Colibri is right across the street and pretty solid Mexican food.

      David's is also right across the street. DO NOT be tempted.

        What do you consider "walking distance"? My first choice would be one of the places on Belden Place, which is a couple of blocks on the other side of Union Square.

            It really depends on what you're in the mood for. Plouf (famous for their mussels) and B44 (Spanish) are the most frequently recommended, but a friend just told me she had a great meal at Brindisi. Although, now that I think about it, my first choice in that neighborhood would probably be Gitane on Claude Lane (which is also slightly closer to the Curran).
