      2 of us myself and a old boyfriend price not a problem also type of food not important we like all types

    2. I'd hit the 13th Street corridor, Barbuzzo, Zavino, Sampan, El Vez (in that order), or Lolita or Bindi if you don't mind BYOB.

        thank you sooo much checked out the website for barbuzzo do we need a reservation?

          Absolutely!! If you can't get one, you should make alternate plans. Farther down the street is Amis, also awesome, and make reservations.

                That stuff is so good. As are the marrow bones. A memorable night found us grazing at Sampan and Barbuzzo. Many plates were eaten, not a bum dish among them.
