Weekend escape in August - Need some guidance

Some great suggestions here! Thanks all for the advice! Unfortunately my work plans have changed at the last minute and now I have to be in Memphis instead (guess I'll have to console myself w some great bbq). So, we have had to put our weekend plans in San Fran on hold for a date later this fall. So disappointing after looking up all these places and seeing how great the food looks, but I've written them all down so we can take advantage of them when we do get out there.

Weekend escape in August - Need some guidance

My husband and I just planned a semi-last minute get away for Aug 9-11. I'm out there for work that week so we're pawning the kids off to the grandparents :). We got so much great advice from this board for our Napa trip a few years ago so I thought I'd ask for your expertise once again.

1) Looking for a place for an earlier dinner and later drinks on Friday night. Maybe tapas or small plates? We're doing the Beach Blanket Babylon show so was thinking eating before and then drinks / late night nibbles afterwards. We're staying at the Hilton in Union Square so close to here or the theater would be great but not required. We love farm-to-table spots and craft cocktails also Italian and Spanish cuisine. Price isn't a concern.

2) Saturday morning we're going to get up and hit the Ferry market then drive out to Napa (I know it's a long drive for just one night but we have such great memories of our trip there we want to get another small sample of the region). Our Saturday late afternoon plans and dinner are taken care of. On Sunday, I was thinking about driving back into the city for brunch somewhere in the Mission area before catching our 4pm flight out of SFO. I have a reservation at Foreign Cinema for 12:45 (earliest they had). Seems doable to me with needing to be back at SFO around 2:30, but do you think this will be too rushed? Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions! We'll be sure to report back on our experiences.

Thanks! We took the suggestion for Bottega's for Wed. night. The menu looks great and I think Italian will be a nice add to the other cuisines on our itinerary.

Thanks wolfe. I had looked at Ubuntu after some of the other reviews here. My husband wasn't excited about it so I put it on the list for another trip with girlfriends.

Help me round out my Napa dinner plans

Hi - I'm new to chowhound since there's not a lot of restaurant action in my hometown in VA but have been collecting a lot of great advice to help me prepare for an upcoming trip to Napa/Sonoma. We currently have one night open on our dinner plans so was curious to see what you all would recommend to round out our experience. So far I've reserved Ad Hoc for Thursday, Meadowood for Fri, and The Girl & the Fig for Sat (staying in Sonoma Sat night). Also was planning Mustard's for lunch one day based on a rec from a friend (but also hear it may have gone downhill recently?). Looking for a place to eat Wed night after we get into town and any other don't miss lunch spots. Any advice?

Thanks in advance!
