Union Square recs for "non-adventurous" eater [San Francisco]
I'm going to be having dinner with a friend in San Francisco tomorrow (Monday night), and the hotel I'm staying at is near Union Square. I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to food, but my friend is not. He's fairly diet-conscious, and doesn't eat fish or pork. Often, he just orders a big green salad with grilled chicken. He will eat Asian food.
I'm trying to find a place where he can find something he'd enjoy, but is also fairly yummy, because I don't get to San Francisco often, and love to take advantage of what the city has to offer. I did some initial searching, and I was wondering what folks thought of the restaurants at Belden Place. Also, how good is the food at Hunan Homes on Jackson St.? Finally, I don't mind if the place is pricey, as long as I can get in without needing a reservation too far in advance.
Any other recommendations would be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance!
I had dinner at that newish Southern place right off Union Square a couple of weeks ago -Hops & Homminy. Anyway, I wasn't too impressed and wouldn't go back but their mac and cheese was surprisingly great. It's MOR food so could be an option for unadventurous. I like Shanghai Bund too. I order delivery from them every once in a while.
Hunan's Home, Z&Y Garden, and Shanghai Bund are all good and near each other. All of them probably have simple dishes for someone who eats that way.
On Belden, I like B44 a lot. They have chicken, beef, and lamb entrees that are simple or could be made simple by having them hold the sauce.
