Great food after MOMA

roxie Jan 18, 2011 12:02 AM

Former long time city dwellers(now in Oakland) heading to MOMA on Sunday afternoon. Please help with suggestions of places within close walking or driving distance for dinner. We are painfully out of "the loop". Frances is an option (the Castro is still close driving distance in our minds). Any other ideas or similarly veined places?

    Thermidor in the Mint Plaza is a short walk and very worthy of consideration. No need to drive anywhere if you get a central parking place near Westfield Mall.

      You might also consider Salt House, which is very closeby.

        I think Salt House is *really* over-rated and too expensive for what they offer. Great cocktails, yes. Mediocre food...

          I totally got taken in by the nice decor and attentive service, or it was just a good night for them the last time I was there.
