We’re generally skeptical of hotel restaurants, but Villon, in the San Francisco Proper, is genuinely good. It doesn’t have that depressing “I’m just a lobby with some tables” feeling, and the bar (which has a Beauty and the Beast library-style ladder for top shelf bottles) is an attractive place to meet someone for drinks. Get the tuna tartare, the Hawaiian bread, and the squid ink noodles - just leave room for some beignets to close out your meal. Then, head upstairs to the hotel’s rooftop bar, Charmaine’s. It has comfortable couches, great views, and expensive but good cocktails. Overall, this place is perfect for a one-two punch, and the crowd is only a tiny bit obnoxious.
