What appetizer(s) would go well with a fig-stuffed-with-cheese one?

Dinner party for eight.

I'm also serving a green salad, white fish with mango/papaya chutney over coconut rice, and a peach crumble for dessert. No dietary restrictions.

Cool place for a pre-opera bite/drink (walking distance to Civic Center)?

Two single ladies in their late 30s, looking for a place to eat/drink within walking distance to the Civic Center, pre-7:00. Is the Grant Grill bar stodgy or no? Other recs where we won't look out of place all dressed up? Thanks.

Need rec for good restaurant w/ sexy/cool bar seating

Hi. I'm a SD native looking for a recommendation for a small neighborhood restaurant with good bar seating (for eating), similar to Beaumont's in LJ (but perhaps a bit "sexier"/intimate). People have mentioned Bankers Hill Bar & Restaurant or Bencotto. It doesn't have to be new.... Any other ideas? I'd prefer not to go to far east from the I-5. Thanks!
