Good restaurants for post city hall ceremony?

aroundthebay Dec 1, 2009 10:13 AM

Hey Chow-ers,

I am having a civil ceremony at City Hall at the end of December and wanted to take some family and friends out afterward. Can anyone recommend a good restaurant that wont' break the bank (can be a little pricey, but not so much that we have to take out a loan) that is somewhat close to City Hall? There will be about 11 or so people.

    Absinthe is just a couple of blocks away while Jardiniere is also close by. Zuni is also just a couple of blocks down market (west).

    Zuni Cafe
    1658 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

    300 Grove St., San Francisco, CA 94102

    Absinthe Brasserie & Bar
    398 Hayes Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

      Zuni would be my first pick. Previous topics posing the same question:

        So sorry for the repeat thread! I tried searching for this kind of thread but couldn’t find one....I guess I was using the wrong verbiage.

        Absinthe looked great but they are closed on Mondays (it seems many places are) and our date is 12/28 (Monday, of course). Kokkari sounds good as well as Jardiniere. I'll see what the fiancée says. Thanks everyone!!!

        Sauce comes to mind. If you have a smaller bank than any of the previous listings might suggest, consider Crepe House on Gough.
