restaurant near Lumiere Theater
I'm looking for a restaurant near the Lumiere Theater on California Street in SF. Nothing fancy but cozy and good place before or after a movie. We're open to any kind of food, just looking for neighborhood favorites in a neighborhood we don't know well. Thanks for any recs you might offer!
For lunch, Swan Oyster Depot (cash only, closed Sundays).
My two favorites near there are Tajine (Moroccan) and Cafe Zitouna (Tunisian), each within two blocks. Bob's Donuts is on the same block as Tajine.

Right you are ...... Cordon Bleu Vietnamese Restaurant - right next to the Lumiere. It's been there since the 1970's - maybe even 60's ? They have a 5 spice chicken that they're well known for IIRC. Casual kind of place I think.

Grubstake is right around there and has some Portuguese options. So is Crepes A Go-Go. Also there's Toast (use to be Bob's Diner) good for breakfast/diner food (all day).
A 2nd on Bob's Donuts...perfect for after the movie. They should be cooking up batches at that time.
2 - 3 blocks away from Lumiere is neighborhood-y Nob Hill Grille. Their web site says, "For guests that are away from home and desire a night off from the San Francisco restaurant 'scene,' we offer a friendlier home-style environment..." http://nobhillgrille.com/
