Relatives from out of town

  • 3

Help! We have relatives coming into SF airport on Sunday morning before they head off to Monterrey for the week. We can meet with them for a few hours. I need suggestions as to any place relatively close to he airport to go out to eat that won't be total chaos (Mother's Day) and take in to account they have a 3 year old and a baby. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  1. What time do they arrive? If you are early enough--say before 10:30--and they like Chinese food, there are several places near the airport: HK Flower Lounge, Asian Pearl, etc. that you might be able to get into.

    One place that is probably not full--they've been open for only 3 months--is Café Tradition, a French-Morroccan place in San Mateo we recently visited (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/782283) and contemplated reserving a table at for Mothers' Day. (We opted for Zibbibo in Palo Alto because my young nieces might prefer something less exotic.)

      Thanks for the suggestions. I will check to see which one sounds good to them. I just am not familiar with what there is close to the airport. Thanks again.

        I am finding I like Zibbibo for corporate events in PA. There's a nice combo of different spaces available, food, eagerness in the late afternoon, and alcohol choices. Good stuff.
