Feeling a little saucy?

THE MISSION

By Nicole Honchariw

WhereLimon (South Van Ness)
When: Any night, but be sure to book in advance for prime time.
Make sure: You order at least one ceviche, your date has no nut or shellfish allergies, you both try every sauce that comes with the chicken.
Cash factor: Light to moderate.

You love the laid-back but cultured vibe your new date is throwing out, and you need a place that caters to her wanderlust chic style. Skip the crowds in the Mission and head all the way down to Limon on South Van Ness. The smaller of the two locations, this is the perfect place to forge some intimate conversation while satisfying your worldly taste buds. Dive in with an order or two of ceviche, some plantains, and a quinoa salad, and whatever you do, get the chicken. And whatever else you do, try all of the sauces that come with it. She will love the contrast of the amazing quality of food against the simple, organic atmosphere. If all goes well, you have the entire Mission District at your fingertips for after dinner drinks (try the dimly lit and sexy Bond if you want to stay on the low key, romantic tip, or something divey fun like Double Dutch if you two want to shake things up.
