Hungry at the Opera

[whitespace] By Paul Adams

But wait! We couldn't park. We didn't have time. We forgot. The show was four hours long. We're hungry! If opera makes you hungry, you'll most likely need a snack or even a meal after the performance. Options are limited, but not drastically so.

Here's where to eat after the opera:

Max's Opera Cafe is open until 1am on weekends. 601 Van Ness Ave.; 415/771-7300.

Jardinierewill seat and feed you if they have room, but that's a fairly slender possibility, as many people have the same idea. 300 Grove St.; 415/861-5555.

Zuni serves burgers and a few other things until midnight, and it's not far. 1658 Market St.; 415/552-2522.

Indigo closes at 11pm. 687 McAllister St.; 415/673-9353.

Stars also serves (from their bar menu) until midnight, and it's an interesting place to literally rub elbows with San Francisco stars. 555 Golden Gate Ave.; 415/861-7827.

Absinthe, with its operatic style, serves dinner until 10:45 and a light menu until 1am. 398 Hayes St.; 415/551-1590.

Or, if the show really goes late, Osha Thai is a bit of a walk at Geary and Jones, but it's open till 3am. 696 Geary St.; 415/673-2368.
