san francisco restaurants city hall-lunch
we've got a crowd of about a dozen coming in for a wedding at city hall on dec 28. can anyone familiar with the area recommend a fine dining restaurant in the are for lunch?
You are going to have to drive somewhere.
The most oft-suggested post-wedding lunches are Absinthe, Zuni, and Jardiniere are all closed on Mondays.
My suggestion would be to head to the financial district: Kokkari, Piperade, or Cafe Claude...
Given the Monday problem:
Wonder if any of the fancy hotels downtown would be good (imagine a lovely space--just don't know re food).
Or see if someplace like R&G Lounge would do a Chinese banquet lunch in a private room.
Finally, if you're driving (as opposed to taxi-ing), you could even head over the (new) Bay Bridge for a lovely celebratory lunch @ Chez Panisse Cafe, which is open Monday's.
