Help me find a place for dinner on Sunday in SF with my mother.

her requirements are: "Casual yummy not too loud." I live in Dogpatch; she'll be driving up the western side of the city (280 to 19th Ave.), so neighborhood is kind of open but ample parking necessary. would love a hidden gem--taken her to all my old neighborhood standbys. would love suggestions of new places to try. thanks for any assistance.

    Try Outerlands, perhaps Park Chow.

      I agree on Outerlands, the food is yummy.
      Also, consider Nopalito on Ninth Avenue in the Inner Sunset. http://www.nopalitosf.com/
      Park Chow can be noisy/crowded.
      Bistro Central Parc
      casual yummy: Hard Knox Cafe - 2448 Clement Street at 26th Avenue
      I also like The Richmond - but parking can be a challenge and it's closed on Sundays.

        Chow can be noisy but the upstairs deck at lunch can be nice. Haven't been to Nopalito on 9th, that's something to look forward to.

          ample parking will not be prsent for any of the places in the inner richmond/sunset. hard knox cafe is also in the dogpatch too, so i'm assuming they've been.

          but yes on outerlands

            from 280, take Junipero Serra Blvd. to West Portal and go to Fresca or Bursa.

            perhaps the concept of 'ample parking' is a myth, but if you're lucky with parking carma/karma and walking is an option... it is doable.

          I'm a big fan of citizen's band. Closer to your neighborhood but should be easy parking on a Sunday eve (not on a friday or saturday, tho).

            Bacco has nice atmoshere, fine pastas, not too loud, and parking is not terrible. Not too far from Dogpatch either.
