ISO Restaurant for Weekday Lunch between Ferry Plaza and Around Pier 24'ish

Any suggestions? I'm BARTing to meet a friend in this area, and we're not in the mood to deal with the FP. Would prefer not to eat burgers and fries (so no Red's JH or Hi-Dive this time), but anything else is fine. Prefer to keep it to around $12-15pp if possible. Our location is flexible, up to a point, so we can go a few blocks North, South, West (though obviously not East!). TIA

  1. Barbacco. Maybe The Plant Cafe Organic?

      I was going to recommend Barbacco as well. Or Wexler's.

      Per Diem on Sutter is a nice lunch spot as well. I like their pasta and often crave their ragu.

        I had lunch with my parents at Per Diem. The pasta was, indeed, good. They were disappointed in the sandwiches, though.

    2. Thanks for the suggestions. As it turned out, we were a bit rushed and ended up at the FP after all. It was a little later in the afternoon, so many of the folks who who had been disgorged from a cruise ship had fortunately dispersed. I passed by earlier in the day and it looked insane.

      By the way, I had an *excellent* meatball sandwich at Il Cane Rosso. I think it was $9. Highly recommended. I'll keep the other restaurants in mind for next time.
