'reasonably' priced restaurant for early dinner in SFcivic center

Going to Wed matinee of Le Miz in a couple of weeks. I'm looking for a reasonably priced place to eat an early dinner. Prefer walking distance from the Orpheum so I don't need to move the car. I'm paying for the four of us thus the need for a reasonably priced place. No picky eaters in the group.

  1. Lers Ros on Larkin Street. Terrific Thai food.

    Google maps estimates about a 10 minute walk.

    1. re: Rapini

      Good suggestion. My go-to for that type of dinner is Bodega Bistro.

    2. There's not much around there that is comfortable walking in heels/dressed up (if you are making a special event out of it). Walking around the Orpheum can feel a little unsafe depending if you are used to more urban environments.

      Lers Ros is very casual and depending how you walk it gets a little dicey.

      If you are looking for something that reads a little more "out on the town" Zuni or Absinthe are traditional choices. With AQ being newer/creative. Not sure if you would consider those choices reasonably priced.

      1. If cheap and no atmosphere will do--Gyro King, on Grove, and very close to the Orpheum. Good gyros, varying other dishes, usual sorts of appetizers (tabouleh, dolma, ...), and nice folk.
