Congratulations!
If you're like me you were absolutely floored when Google came out with the Google Maps service. Sure, it's just another mapping service ... until you realize it's full potential. The ability to toggle between regular street/road maps and a satellite view is unreal. I've started to see a lot of ...

A-mazing. Really great food, well balanced. Menu changes daily. I recommend letting their knowledgeable staff plan your meal. Nice ambiance. Reasonable price point for the meal. Perfect for a post-SFJAZZ meal.

Food wasn't great for the price point. Servers are nice, but for the price point you shouldn't have to bus your own table. Plus i saw one of the kitchen staff pick his nose which is unsanitary.
