Any suggestions for restaurants with private room for 35 ppl for offsite corporate event? Would like either someplace with local flavor or a foodie spot and somewhere either near our hotel or Taliesin West as we are doing a guided tour there in the late afternoon. Terrace and or view a plus. Thanks in advance.

Where did all the Karahi/Indian Woks go?

I, too have been looking for this item. I placed an order at my local and very excellent kitchen shop and have been getting the runaround for two months. It was to be a wedding gift. I went to the All-Clad site and it lists the Karahi as a new product. Have you found it yet? I really want this for my friend, tried buying local, but will now buy from anywhere.

Good Drinks, Good Sushi

Looking for a nice (does not need to up YUPPIE) spot for a drink (or two) followed by sushi dinner. Out of Union Square/Convention area a plus, but within reasonable cab ride or Muni

Need Cool Wine Bar Atmosphere Near Moscone

Opposite post from cool dive bar. Have client and need to do the "drink" thing. Woud prefer not to get killed at the hotel bar with pricing. Not so much into the yuppie thing, but something along those lines. Cab ride ok

Need Cool Bar, Great Jukebox, Food Ok

On b-trip to SF at Hilton on O'Farrell. Looking for a great hangout bar with good tunes, some food, dive bar but not really. Willing to take cab within reason. Pool tables a plus. Definitely DO NOT want to be were all the conventioneers will be.

Challenge: I need to find warm space to hold large rehearsal/ out of towners pre- wedding dinner where the food is excellent. It can be moderately expensive, upscale. Most of the wedding guests are coming from California. We might have as many as 100!

might try Etc. Etc. I am not sure exactly what the private room looks like, but the food will be great.

Cool Spot on N. Michigan

You were kind enough to answer my last post when I was in Chicago at the Westin! So, thanks again. For my bar night, I really want something Local in Feel, not at a hotel. We both travel a lot and end up at the hotel bar for lack of anything easier. I was hoping for a fun, tapas-like bar where we can have a couple of drinks, chat and order some tasty food. I keep hearing about Rush Street - something I should look into?

Cool Spot on N. Michigan

In town on business staying at Omni @ 676 N. Michigan. Need one rec for cool bar/restaurant near hotel for entertaining a very low-key person and one rec for a foodie restaurant that I can eat alone and not feel totally weird. Cab okay for solo night but near hotel also a plus. Thanks!

Can anyone suggest a great local restaurant near the Westin. In town on business, but doing b-dinners on nights two and three, so want some good local atmosphere and food and not touristy. Any type of food would be okay, except steakhouse! Thxs.

Lucques Short Ribs - Too Much Liquid

Lucques Short Ribs - Too Much Liquid

This is the second time I have made Suzanne Goin's fantastic short ribs but both times I end up with an enormous amount of braising stock unused. I buy 5 pounds of short ribs which fit perfectly in my Le Creuset Dutch Oven. Is anyone else experiencing this? Does anyone have a formula to reduce the liquid so I don't waste all that wine, port and beef stock?

Need Spot to take Foodie Boss and Wife

I was supposed to make reservations at Blue Hill but got the date wrong and missed the reservation window. Any suggestions for something a little of the beaten path?

Best Chicken Parm?

By far, the best chicken parm in the city is at a restaurant called Bello located on 9th Ave and 56th St. The restaurant caters to a theater crowd so don't go before 7:45pm. They are a little upscale rather than fun. I think the chick parm is around $18 - $19 and comes with a load of delicious pasta.
