Looking for good (or hopefully great) pizza in walnut creek area

Thanks, goldangl. Good to have a safe bet, and that might be what we end up with. Know anything about Pizza Antica in Lafayette?

Any suggestions for good take-out pizza in Walnut Creek or vicinity? Delivery would be fine, too, just not sit-down. Thanks.

Tasty, casual dinner near Theater Artaud (Mariposa & Florida)

I'm thinking about returning to Sunflower on 16th and Valencia since I loved the pancake but haven't been in a long time. Anyone have any recent experience with it?

Any other suggests greatly appreciated. Money's a bit tight so economical's a definite plus.

Thanks.

good, cheap pre-theater dinner suggests for tonight near 6th and mission?

Please, anyone care to weigh in?

Lers Ros
Turtle Tower
Tu Lan -- haven't been in probably ten years but loved it then

Others? I'd include Lahore Karahi as well, but I've been reading about the change since new ownership.

Or, for something completely different...Farmer Brown -- never been for dinner but I've had their fried chicken app at the bar, and loved it. (I know it'd be a slightly higher tab than any of the above.)

Beijing/Northern Chinese in Sunset

Thanks, Windy, I'll give those a taste next time I'm there. Didn't see the donuts? We were told of the extremely spicy pancake, that the name translates as something like "death by spice," which intrigued me, but since my dining companion isn't a heat fiend we went another direction to share.

Sounds like we have similar tastes on this, Robert. Know any spots where the noodles and/or pancakes would knock my socks off?

Thanks, Windy. Went to Old Mandarin and had a very good dinner. Beef pancake, chef's special lamb ribs, sauteed string beans. Not sure why but the beef pancake started me out a bit off, but I blended a bit of soy with the vinegar and it was much more to my liking. Lamb and beans were both delicious. Was a bit more than we'd planned on spending for two (and probably would have spent at some of the others) but still think it was a good value.

Thanks very much to all. Please chime in especially if you have any updates on the previous threads, some a year or more ago.

Wanting to try Beijing on Alemany but see that those folks have opened a spot on Irving, too. Which is a lot more convenient. The question is, of course, is it as good as the original is reported to be?

And while we're on the subject of northern Chinese, what are your latest experiences with Old Mandarin, Little Beijing and Dong Bei Mama? Can you tell I'm eager for the possibilities we have here?

Turkish on Fillmore

Anyone know of a Turkish place on Fillmore? A friend said there's one.

Somewhere along the way between Napa and SF

Any suggests for dinner somewhere on the SF-Napa drive?

Midweek, prefer Marin but E. Bay would work, too. We're looking to meet a Napa friend halfway so he doesn't have to come into SF and we don't have to drive to Napa. Tasty food is important but ambience is too (if not moreso, t's gotta have personality). Plus we'll want the chance to linger and relax with a good friend.

Know anything in Novato or even Petaluma?

2 dinners/2 lunches to convince NY hounds to move to SF?

I don't mean to suggest that these aren't good suggestions for great food. But if what they're after is something to truly distinguish SF from NY, I don't think these really do it. Half the time in current SF food culture I feel like I am in NY.

I have to dissent:

Are you looking for something characteristically, even specially, SF, or something that would attend to NY cravings? Based on the responses so far, and the absence from them of two old-school stars of SF -- Alice Waters and Greens -- I'm guessing you'll be tasting the mini-NY that SF foodies are now enjoying, and creating. But miss them -- and taquerias -- and I think you'll miss the SF that is in a class absolutely by itself.

Sure, not technically the Mission, but 30th and Church is about as close as you can get. After all, it's barely in Noe Valley.

Anyone been to Sons & Daughters recently? I've heard it can be uneven, albeit inventively so. What do you think?

Thanks. I've gotten a res for Zuni but it's a bit later than I'd really like (we're a mixed group, so joining a couple of relatives in their 70's). NOPA's out. Any other suggests? Thinking perhaps Piperade, South Park Cafe, Zazie?

Got a guest coming in from out of town. I haven't been to Zuni in a long time, so would you recommend there or NOPA for dinner? This would be mid-week.
