South of Market, Drinks, Dinner?

Where would you send a young thirty-something couple on a first date? They're going for drinks, so they'd like a nice lounge with good drinks and tables, AND would like the possibility of just turning it into dinner easily . . . .

I'm told they'd prefer South of Market, but they work in the financial district, so I'm not sure how written in stone that preference is.

I'm being consulted as the foodie-in-residence, so I'd like to give them good advice. Too bad I don't know San Francisco! But I told them that my eGullet friends would steer them in the right direction.

Any ideas will be very welcome!!!

Thanks.

Piano with lounge singer, killer Sidecars, table-side made tartare, vaulted ceilings, white-suited servers...

One of the most elegant and under-rated "old world" restaurants in the city. Perfect for romance.

I'm proud to say that I didn't just post for help without doing some research--I read Carolyn's entire "New Journey" thread, for instance--and came up with two ideas: Bix, at the top of the list, and Biscuits and Blues, which I thought might be too music-focused.

Glad to see we're on the same wavelength! Thanks!

Biscuts and Blues is really really awesome, I think it would be a really fun first date. It is definitely music focused but I think it would be a great spot, something different and semi-casual.
