Hello all ... searching for a cast iron waffle iron. I can find them online but want a brick and mortar solution. Broadway Panhandler doesn't sell anything like this. Anyone know who sells lots of cast iron stuff in NYC?

Hello all and Happy New Year! I thought I would write to say thank you to all the Bay Area folks who offered advice on where I should go during my recent trip to San Francisco (visiting from NYC). My plans changed a little but we did wind up eating at Frances on our last night in town. Put this place on the top of your list to try. There were four of us and we ordered from all over the menu. The entire meal was excellent! The bacon bigniets were all you might hope in such a dish, the mixed chicories were beautiful. All of the entrees were delicious ... My favorite was the chicken actually, which surprises me because usually chicken tends to be a little boring but this was perfectly cooked, moist ... really well done. The skate was excellent as well. The buttermilk panna cotta was the standout dessert that night. They used the citrus form the market to great effect all over the menu but especially here. The staff all showed an attention to detail that really impressed me and the service was really very attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Also had a great bunch at The Tipsy Pig in the Marina.
See you in NYC!

Hello all- coming to San Francisco for Xmas and new year. Need recs for restaurants, specifically a home run business/pleasure dinner for 4 - sophisticated not stuffy, less formal but still hip if that makes any sense. I'm looking for a newer more up-market Delfina. I have some candidates: A16 Salt House Frances Firefly Town Hall
Any thoughts, suggestions?
Last meal in the city was at Plumpjack and enjoyed it. Hard to remember details its been so long ... no specific neighborhood preferences but will be staying on Russian Hill. I've been looking at menus and $$$ not a big issue but I do appreciate value. NYC prices are twice the most expensive San Francisco prices I've seen and I eat out a lot.
Also, a nice tapas place would be great to know. Will gladly offer NYC advice in return :) Cheers! KW
