Pre-concert dinner in Nob Hill area
Looking for dinner suggestions for a group of 4 heading to Saturday night SFJazz at 8pm Nob Hill Masonic. Preferably no more than a short walk, and we absolutely must get out on time. Chinatown might be an option. Users of this board gave such great leads for a similar question near the Palace of Fine Arts.
Before the concert at Palace of Fine Arts we went to Liverpool Lil's - easy walking distance, great burgers and fries, very good draft beer options, unpretentious pub atmosphere. Fish looked good too. Afterwards we stopped in at A16 for a drink.
We're adventurous eaters, but that night we won't want to linger over a banquet or spend that much either. I was just glancing over the Nob Hill post, and Nob Hill Cafe looks good and close by.

There are several options that should work: Venticello, Nob Hill Cafe, and The Big Four in the Huntington Hotel. The first two would be quicker and more informal.

There are many great restaurants on Hyde st. that are within walking distance to the Nob Hill Masonic. My absolute favorite is 1550 Hyde (on Hyde at Pacific). Wondefully prepared seasonal food with an equally amazing wine selection. Reasonable prices to boot. There's a nice seafood restaurant across the street that is delicious too. They specialize in fish en papillote (sp?). Also great is Frascati, Luella and Zarzuela further up Hyde st. (but away from California st and the NH Masonic).

Thanks much, all of you, for suggesting this variety of convenient options. I'll see which the others fancy for Saturday, but would appreciate a chance to check the rest of them out another time.
