Thanksgiving in San Francisco

Thanks singleguychef and margieco. I just checked out the menus of all four restaurants and all look very interesting. I'm passing along the suggestions to my daughter to let her check out the menus and decide. This is just what I'm looking for- low key, good food, interesting neighborhood spot. No hotel craziness. Thanks.

Thanksgiving in San Francisco

We are traveling to S.F. for Thanksgiving to visit our daughter who works at a restaurant there. We would like to go out for an afternoon dinner but do not want to go the hectic, buffet route. Any suggestions? Price doesn't matter, as long as it relaxing and great food. The Ritz carlton dining room is closed that day but I did check out the Sutro's at the Cliff, which looks interesting. Any and all suggestions highly welcomed. PS- She is working the night before and the day after Thanksgiving, so she'll be tired and probably won't feel like taking a trip to Napa.

An Unforgiving Ending

From what I understand, Molecular Gastronomy involves a huge support team and I think that, while Richard's concepts were great, sometimes he got overwhelmed having to execute a complete meal. I don't think he "choked" at the end, but realized that he probably needed a couple of sous chefs to pull off his meal. BTW- I've eaten at Stephanie's Scylla many times, and the meals were always outstanding. She produced elegant dishes from a tiny kitchen.

Lunch with Mozart

A friend's mother is coming into town for her 75th birthday and wants to find a place in Chicago for lunch that is a "quaint restaurant with an outdoor patio that has flowers and Mozart playing in the background". Any suggestions? I thought Chez Joel or maybe the outdoor patio at Nomi? Any help is appreciated.
