San Francisco classic: House of Prime Rib!

Okay, that picture to the left is either your idea of fine dining or something out of a horror film.

(Creamed spinach, ewwwww!)

But for those of us interested in classic San Francisco restaurants, which we will visit over the coming months, House of Prime Rib is on the short list, along with Original Joe's, the Tonga Room, John's Grill, the Cliff House and a handful of other places. (Taking nominations if anyone has suggestions here.)

Needless to say, prime rib is the star of the menu, but fish, salads and sides are also available if it's just not a carnivore day for you.

I don't think parking is brutal around here, but it's not good. Lots of mass transit options available. About three quarters of a mile up Van Ness from the Civic Center BART if that's your thing.

As always, please don't RSVP unless you're pretty sure you're going to come. I'm not the backup plan for your evening. No exceptionally late cancellations either, please -- kindly leave your fellow diners ample chance to take your spot if you need to bail.

Thanks for reading, and see you at dinner, my bloody valentine!

    What a carnivorous adventure! Wow, the entire dinner is a production (loved the salad making show from our waiter). Great dinner companions, a wonderful bottle of red wine, and the Chocolate Fantasy rounded out the night. I'm so glad we visited this SF institution! Thanks for another great dinner David!

    FABULOUS! Quite possibly the most tender, sweet, juicy slab of cow that I have ever had in a LONG time. Great folks and the smaller table made for easy convo. I will be back.

    Hey David, are you changing your name to Bosley or Charlie? lol BTW, the PR is great and the menu is simple. Do you want small, medium, large or HUGE? Have fun.

    I am told by my coworker that the amount of food is RIDICULOUS, so nobody eat too much on the day of this event. And the sides are all you can eat. lol

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
