A tiny restaurant that is a giant in the culinary world, this nondescript storefront in a somewhat skeevy stretch of Folsom Street produces some of the most exquisitely conceived and executed food in the Bay Area.
Amazingly original cuisine designed to impress. Most dishes are stunning and vibrant in flavor and style.
Citysearch Editorial Review – On a gritty, industrial stretch of Harrison, behind an 18th Century carriage house, a lovely mini-garden leads to a sun-dappled, art-filled dining room of the sort found in the wealthy, tasteful homes of friends whose lives we envy. This room is gallery to the culinary art of Josh Skenes--a Michael Mina disciple and former chef of 3.5-starred Chez TJ--and sommelier Mark Bright, who together conceived this weekends-only (Fri-Sun), prix-fixe restaurant as a fine-dining experience without the pomp and snobbery. The four courses change weekly, but expect the cream of the farmers market crop topped off with gaudy delicacies like Ostreta caviar and foie gras, all paired with vintages from Bright's arsenal (the prix fixe is $70; wine pairings $40). With a big enough party, the whole 32-seat room can be reserved, while smaller groups will have to share the long table; either way, the quietly knowing, unobtrusive service combines with the kitchen talent for an intimate dinner-party experience that even your wealthiest friends couldn't pull off.
Best food in San Francisco – I went not sure what to expect but I was blown away by the execution of the food. Not to mention the quality of the products. Really phenomenal.
