Noe Valley lunch weekday
We are visiting from North Carolina with a 3 year-old this week, and my brother just closed on a house on 22nd street and Castro. I was interested in Delfina for lunch. Wondering if there were any other suggestions for lunch in Noe? Is Dlefina a good pick? thanks
These appear to be Delfina's hours.
Mon-Thu 5:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Fri-Sat 5:30 p.m.-11:00 p.m. Sun 5:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.

Mon 5:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Tue-Thu 11:30 a.m.-10:00 p.m. Fri 11:30 a.m.-11:00 p.m. Sat 12:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. Sun 12:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.
Delfina isn't in Noe Valley, but their pizzeria is a fine place for lunch.
Nearby in the Castro, you might try Kasa (Indian fast food on 18th) or Thorough Bread (Church and 15th for baked goods, patio, sandwiches, and pastries).
Generally Noe doesn't have great food, although it is friendly enough for 3 year olds.
Fattoush is a family favorite. Highly recommended if you like Middle Eastern / Lebanese.

Eric's (and Alice's) pales in comparison to Henry's Hunan just down the street. Toast has decent chow and may be a good place if you're taking a 3-year old. Pasta Gina doesn't really have many places to sit - it's primarily a gourmet food shop.
Personally I would try for Pastores, which is pretty close by on Mission. If it turns out to be closed you can always hit Toast or Pomelo or any of these other places along Mission:
Good Frikin' Chicken
Pasta Gina is takeout. Mi Lindo Yucatan has closed. Eric's is just plain bad.
I love Henry's Hunan, but it's out at 29th and Church, not that close to 22nd.
I do agree with bigwheel's list below--the strip along Mission has many better options. However they are not that close to 22nd unless you have a car or time for a stroll. Balompie in particular is at least a mile, probably farther.
Pomelo is an excellent neighborhood dining spot. We eat there occasionally and also occasionally get takeout. My husband likes a Cuban style skirt steak, and I usually get Otsu, a tofu and soba noodle dish. Reliable and consistent, if not spectacular food, and not a destination restaurant by any means.
