Old Italian restaurant

As we are sitting around the table at Thanksgiving, we are remembering Italian restaurant that used to be on Chestnut near Steiner. Does anyone remember? Not E'Angelo or Parma.

Tapeo in Marin

I saw some reviews from a couple of years ago. I am wondering if anyone has been there recently and what you think? we are talking about going for a girls night out and I do not want to be disappointed.

Warren "Scooter" Simmons, co-founder of Chevys Fresh Mex restaurants, is catching a wave back to Greenbrae.
Simmons and his wife Nancy are planning to open a new restaurant - Wipeout Bar & Grill - at the former site of the Chevy's at Bon Air Center. The restaurant, which will have a California surfing theme, is expected to open this summer.
Bon Air Center was the site of the second restaurant to open in the Chevys chain, which Simmons and his father Warren Sr. founded in 1986. The first was in Alameda, and the chain later grew to more than 100 restaurants.
The Simmonses sold the company in 1993.
"Having grown up in Marin, we have such an emotional attachment to this location," said Scooter Simmons, 50.
It will be the second Wipeout location; the first opened in San Francisco in 2005.

Has service gotten better? Whe we went service was horrid; food good.

family eats in san fran

Puccini & Pinetti or Buca di Beppo are both great with kids.

Visiting San Fran for 1st time

You have to try Gary Danko. I think its $61 for a three course meal. Great service, delicious food. What an experience!!

Best Burger in Bay Area?

Mike's at the Crossroads in Cotati is by far the best burger around. They use Harris Ranch meat, and they are huge, and delicious.

Overrated disappointments

Must say that Kitchen in Novato has gotten rave reviews, but I found it overpriced and not that fabulous. Plus their well advertised early bird 3 courses for $15 is nothing off the regular menu, but like a poor man's choice of other food.
