Brunch for 6 in SF
I am hosting a brunch for 6 of my dearest friends in the city and am hoping for some feedback. Looking for someplace that takes reservations and is hopefully within relatively easy public transit of Powell St. Bart.
I'd prefer a menu that is balanced between sweet and savory options, with interesting choices but not so far "out there" that everyone will be looking at the menu askance after a night of drinking.
Places I'm considering:
Any thoughts, additions, comments? Thanks!
I'd consider adding Bar Tartine to your list of possibilities. See my recent post about brunch there: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/886961
I'm not sure which of the places on your list take reservations, or what time they all open....is this for a Saturday or Sunday?
Nopa is my favorite brunch in SF. Plus, they take reservations, which is always a bonus. But it is further from Bart than some of your other options.
I haven't been to Cotogna for brunch but would be very surprised if it was anything but excellent.
Like Dave MP, I am also a fan of brunch at Bar Tartine.
I was also going to suggest Bar Tartine - so good! I'm also a big fan of Savor in Noe Valley. You can take the J Church Outbound from Powell Street to get there.
My friends and I went there after NYE this year, so I can assure you it's great after a long night! :)
I'm attaching a pic of the *delish* French Toast & fresh fruit I got there that day.
Hope this helps!
