        Since you were here they've set up a permanent "street food park" with different vendor/trucks every day, seating, etc.:

        I stand by my AQ rec. and I think you would like Barbacco.

        You might want to read one of the long pizza threads. Or check out Tony's Pizza Napoletana, which does many different styles of both Italian and regional-American pizza.

          I am not the biggest fan of Barbacco compared to the other California-Italian restaurants. I really like Cotogna, Locanda and

          If you like the odder parts of animals (tongue, offal etc.), Incanto is a treat.

          St. Vincent for a cozy wine bar that serves interesting combinations - rich good food.

          There's a new Argentinian Steakhouse concept in the Mission called Lolinda.

            I was thinking of Barbacco more on the lines of a more casual place for sandwiches, salads, etc. which is what he seemed to be looking for. Obviously a very different kind of experience than the other places you mentioned.
