Greetings fellow chowhounds.
My betrothed and I are getting married at SF city hall in a few weeks. It will be just the two of us-- we'd like to just have a fun, slightly raucous evening with the two of us kicking around town and eventually crashing at the Mark Hopkins.
The one element of the evening we can't decide on is where to eat! We have a list of bars picked out... can't remember all of them (the fiancee is in charge of that) the comstock, and tosca are of two of them. I suggested eating at Zuni, but my BF doesn't think it will be too much fun to stumble in tipsy at 8pm (at which time we will already have had several rounds of bubbly) for a sit down meal. I agree that the ambiance at Zuni is a bit on the quieter side. We may go there immediately after the ceremony (which is at 2pm) for oysters and a heavy snack, but by 9pm we'll be starving.
My favorite restuaurant in the Bay Area is Camino, but unfortunately we won't be venturing to Oakland that night. Do any fellow chowhounds have a rec for a restaurant in the 7x7 that has a lively later night scene, but still with super good food? Doesn't have to be a sit down place... I think we'd probably be okay with getting heavier bar snacks.
Thanks in advance!!!
