9 "Quiet Meals" restaurants in San Francisco.
Amarena is a small Italian spot in Russian Hill that’s great for dropping into on a weeknight for some solid pasta.
Sorrel is an upscale California-Italian place in Pac Heights that’s designed to impress, even if they do everything a little too by the book.
Try Gardenias, in lower Pac Heights, when you’re looking to drink a bottle of wine and eat like a moderately health-conscious French king.
Gary Danko is a taste of a fancier, older San Francisco you’re probably not used to. Fortunately, it’s a very delicious taste.
