Need a suggestion for one dinner - some restrictions

I'll be in San Francisco for two nights next month. Never been there before (well not in the last 25 years, anyway) so really don't know the city at all. Anyway I've booked dinner at Aziza for one night - which I'm looking forward to. But I need one more suggestion. It would be a much easier decision if it weren't for the following: one of us is kosher-ish, in that she doesn't eat meat or shellfish when dining out. Fish is fine as are vegetarian dishes. We'll be staying somewhere central - not sure exactly where yet - and since it's the first night would probably prefer not to have to travel too far. Wondering about Zuni Cafe? I was looking at Camino but it's in Oakland. Italian, seafood, Mexican are all good. Not so much Asian or Indian. Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Ok so no responses so far. I'm not taking it personally....

    Any comments about SPQR or Bocadillos? And anyone have experience at Camino?

    1. I don't know any restaurants in the bay that have real kosher kitchens. I would suggest Greens as a nice vegetarian restaurant. Quince was able to make us a vegetarian tasting menu. Delifina has meat free pasta dishes. AQ doesn't have many vegetarian dishes but usually has 2 fish dishes and are good with restrictions.

        Don't need a kosher restaurant, just someplace that has options with no meat or shellfish. She's not that picky.

      2. Cotogna also fits the bill if Quince is too high a price point.

          1. How about Firefly?
