Reliable and delicious, the Zuni Cafe is a mainstay in the heart of San Francisco. A great vibe with a ecletic and exciting crowd. The Chicken for 2 is an unbelievable treat and probably the best prepared chicken I've ever tasted. It is in a word, orgasmic! Great Caesar salads too. The Zuni is a terrific restaurant for any occasion but its popularity and quality make it rather tough to get into on occasion so reservations are almost always required. But even if you don't have one, waiting at the bar for a table (sometimes for a hour or more) is an ente

Always reliable and always good, Il Foranaio (or ill for an hour as my 4 year old son once quipped!) serves first rate Italian food in a comfortable room. What's good about Il Fornaio is that it doesn't reek of a chain restaurant. Each location has its own vibe and cuisine which make each restaurant unique and memorable.
