Early Dinner Near Phoenix Theater in Union Square area (Mason and Geary)

elglads Dec 21, 2011 11:07 AM

We are going to a 7:00 show next Thursday at the Phoenix Theater (Mason between Geary and Post). Any recommendations for a pre-show dinner nearby or between Powell St BART station and theater? Preference is inexpensive. ($50-60 total tab for two; this is a last minute addition to the holiday season and we've already done our splurging). We're open on type of food but don't want it to be too divey. Thanks.

    Colibri on Geary - upscale Mexican but not too upscale so I'd think it would fit your budget.

      If you are happy with a light, informal dinner, Grand Cafe (in the Hotel Monaco, I believe) on Geary at Taylor has Happy Hour in the bar from 3 - 7 pm, with specials on food and drinks, the regular bar menu is reasonable also. It's a nice room, not at all divey.
