Hayes Street Grill is perfect. Reservations are recommended, but you can eat at the bar also. Street parking is free after six and you can often find parking spaces on Franklin or side streets close by.
The weather was sunny and windy. I wore My wife wore something nice and I wore a suit, too bad seeing people in shorts and tennis shoes, people should dress better. At least business casual and cocktail dresses. But, that just me!.
We were in a hurry and found a great corner store on Hayes with pre-made organic sandwiches. Wish I could remember the name. We just asked someone on the street where we could find quick food, and they pointed us to it.

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
