Mid to High range restaurants/dishes that is good for takeout?
The missus and I had just recently had a new baby and have been unable to eat out as often as we would like to. In light of this, we would still love to be able to enjoy some of the finer dishes that the city has to offer, but at the comfort of our home. What we would like to know is in your experience, which dishes from which restaurants would travel well and still be just as good or almost as good as we were eating there. And which would allow us to purchase take-out.
To give you a better understanding of what we like, the restaurants that we use to love are (in no specific order):
Thank you in advance.

i only did it once and got at hamburger, mac and cheese, and bread pudding - everythign tasted fine, but what particularly impressed me is how they packed the ice cream for the bread pudding in a separate container so that i could stick in the freezer when i got home while i ate the rest of my meal.
also absolutely the only mid to high end restaurant in SF that does delivery.
in general, obviosuly anything coming out of a deep fryer or beign served raw (essentially, anythign that shoudl be eaten as soon as it's served to you and should never sit out) probably aren't as good choices for take out.
there's also beretta
Locanda does take out orders. I have only had their tripe to go and it traveled and re-heated fine. I'm not sure if there pastas or mains would travel as well, but if you call them they can probably give better take out suggestions.
Our favorite "nicer" takeout order is the whole chicken from Limon Rotisserie. Delicious, travels well, and great deal with 2 sides.

I get take out from Dosa frequently. The dosas travel pretty well and all the curries are great.
