Town Hall - Southern soul food with an upscale twist + excellent cocktail bar. The bread alone is worth a visit!
Salt House - Upscale contemporary american food in swank brick-and-timber settings. Yum
The Stinking Rose - I never went there, I was always worried that it was going to be a bit of a gimmicky restaurant, but if you say it’s good I’ll have to try it next time I’m in San Francisco.
