Suggestions for something special that's walking Distance to AT&T Park

  • v

Would love to hear some suggestions for something w/in a 10 minute walk of the ball park. My wife and I are going to Cirque de Soleil in a few weeks and I wanted a nice dinner spot that is walkable to the event. Some suggestions have been Baccar and Fringale...not sure what I think about those spots. Not sure if Waterbar or Epic Roasthouse are walkable and/or good spots. I'm looking for something that is "food first" and not necessarily elegant or formal. Since we're going to Cirque afterwards something upbeat would be good. Thank you!

  1. Your options are limited if you want to be able to walk to the ballpark. There's also Acme Chophouse and the 21st Amendment, but I'm not sure if either is what you're looking for. A little farther away is La Mar, which has gotten some good reviews for the food, but that's a longer walk (or short cab ride) to the ballpark.

    1. How far is walking distance? Coco500, Fringale and Koh Samui & the Monkey (Thai) all are close. Haven't been to Coco in a while but Fringale is casual and the food is very good in my view. Koh is also a nice place, cheery, bright...above average Thai food.

      Also if you go to Waterbar or Epic, there's a Muni Metro (street car) that go to-from ATT if you think it's too far. It stops pretty much right in front of both. $2 bucks RT - save your transfer.

      1. Walking along the Embarcadero is pleasant anytime, so consider Chaya and Boulevard and Slanted Door, and maybe even Yank Sing. Google quotes 1.4 miles, along the barbary coast trail, sculptures and bay views, an excellent after dinner stroll under the bridge and past the marina. As mentioned, there's easy muni, but if you're in moderatly good health, give yourself 25 minutes and just hoof it.

        Fringale is nice, a little staid, you should like french. It's casual *for a french place*, not beer & peanuts casual like 21st amendment. Warm feeling, great food. Neglect not South Park Cafe, although it's not quite in the same league as Fringale food-wise. Both are on my "something special" list. I've been wanting to try Nova, but can't recommend it without going there.

        1. I'd skip 21st amendment--save it for lunch on a Giants game day. Coco500 and Fringale are both good--I think I prefer Fringale. Orson is also right down the street from Fringale but I've not been for dinner and it seems to get mixed reviews. There's also South, on Townsend Street--Australian cuisine, whatever that involves. There's a nice little Italian place on Third between Harrison and Bryant, I think it's called Briciola or something like that. Zare at Fly Trap is excellent--on Folsom between Second and Third. In fact, that's where I think I would go.

          1. We did this a few years ago - had dinner at Acme, parked 1/2 block away. Then we found out that the cirque show was actually in the parking lot, several blocks away, which is not fun walking in the dark during winter.
