Ok, I didn't find a thread in the first search page on this sub-forum for eating in "The City", which is a bit shocking. I actually have a specific question in mind, but people can weigh in on restaurants etc. and discuss, making this a more open thread hopefully in the end. So, specific question in the spoiler, otherwise, foodies, talk away. I need a decent restaurant that can take a large party 12-14 people on a Thursday. Ideally, reasonable MUNI ride away from Union Square where we'll be. Not too expensive for academics on a research budget, but in a city this rich in food choices, even with prices going up on everything, this must be possible. Castro, Mission, even the Inner Sunset though that is less preferable. Of course anything near downtown too would be fine though I prefer to head out. @sugarbutch @GusW @Mr. Six @justinkapur @emptym @brillopad and anyone else who is in the Bay Area and has an idea, your help is appreciated. Please ping any other residents of the City or Bay Area. Suggested courses etc. also appreciated. Any type of food is fine. Heck places to avoid also good. Cheers.
