Monsieur Benjamin on the west side of Gough St., just south of Grove St. We enjoyed an excellent a la carte French dinner on New Year's Eve, at a price that was surprisingly more affordable than the prix fixe menus offered by other restaurants in the Civic Center-Hayes Valley area.
Barcino very close by on Hayes takes reservations.
MTT’s From the Diary of Anne Frank
The weather was cool, but the symphony hall got pretty warm.. I wore a pretty dress and brought a cashmere wrap to toss over my knees to stay warm during the concert..
Used Lyft from Berkeley Hills to Davies. Hassle free, reasonable costs, and fast.
Parking $15 at the 110 Franklin lot.
The weather was rainy. I wore Christmas top and slacks.
depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!
Corridor at 100 Van Ness, casual and fast with great food and service
Take public transit or bike!
BART is great but walking past the homeless was not.
Many dining venues on Van Ness, such as 30 0 or Max's or Hayes Valley
The weather was mild. I wore casual clothes but dressing up is also strongly encouraged!.
Please remember not to talk during live performances. The only bad part of the night was the woman sitting behind me who "assumed" none of us could hear here when she was commenting throughout the first piece.
The weather was windy and chilly. I wore black slacks, jersey top, black cardigan dressy sweater and boots.
Plan on parking blocks away from event. Bring sweater or jacket as the weather changes from one moment to the next.
