trendy restaurant?

my boyfriend and I are coming to san fran in early nov and i was hoping for a trendy restaurant with good food, or a romantic (but nothing too fussy) with good food. is scala bistro good? we are staying in the chacellor and it is practically next door. any recommendations would be great.

Also, what are some nice trendy night spots, some place fun to grab a martini or glass of wine?

Frisson on Jackson Street has an amazing cocktail menu with fun and tasty creations. It's super hip and a great place in my opinion to have a cocktail and an appetizer. Scala's is nice as well and the location couldn't be more convenient.

Not too far from Frisson, on Montgomery, is Bubble lounge, which is also very hip and popular. You might want to try Bix for Dinner or something on Belden Lane-Tiramisu or Plouf.

Is Frisson in the same location where Cypress Club used to be?

I'm coming up, solo, at the end of the month and have been recommended the following places that also fit the trendy/sociable bar scene without sacrifising food quality...care to comment on them?:




Town Hall

DiMaggio's Chop House


San Francisco

Bubble Lounge is my choice for a trendy place to go for drinks for sure!

Asia de Cuba at the Clift is pretty trendy and not too far away for dinner. The bar there, the Redwood Room is also trendy and popular.

Don't have any personal experience at several of your recommendations, but have heard mostly good things about them all. Town Hall I like. I've only had cocktails at Myth. Check out SFSurvey.com or search this site for some informative reviews.
