I hadn't thought of Eating in S.F for a lng time and then several eating places came to mind. Lupos, a great Italiian Restaurant, The Iron Pot on Montgomery and another that was North of the Iron Pot, name escapes. 
My first wife was school mate of Ray Goman Jr and we spent several tnights at the sow, don't recall trumpet player, but the music was mostly 90's.
Across Columbus was a "Tea Room" which did not cater those of the male persuasion. 
As to another question in a previous post.  Tempo of the YBJB. I knew people were dancing at the Dawn Club, circa 1941/1942. But at 15/16 years I was more interested in absorbing the music from in front of the band stand. I remember dancing at HB Kelleys, but don't recall a lot of dancing at the "Big Bear Inn' . Asking alot for 65 years ago. There wasn't a lot of tries to emulate the 20's dancing. but most of the steps were from the shag and early 40's jitterbug and swing.
