Minimalist foodie mecca using local ingredients in avant-garde Californian-French tasting menus.
"Daniel Patterson, who has made a name for himself internationally both as a chef and as a pundit on contemporary restaurant trends, has created a destination restaurant, an enchanting spot on the gritty end of Broadway. There are two dining rooms: the front room, a bit more casual with rustic wood tables and banquettes with pillows, and the 30-seat formal dining room, with soft lighting, luxe linens, and gold-taupe banquettes along the two walls." - Fodor's
"...you'll find not only great produce but also wild-harvested leaves, barks, seaweeds and coastal grasses being incorporated into the nightly changing fixed-price menu. An inverted fromage blanc tart might be accented with wheatgrass; Monterey abalone may be served with spelt porridge; and Earth and Sea tofu is coagulated in seawater. Flavors are bright, clean and always intriguing in the nine-course menu." - San Francisco Chronicle
Step off the bustling street into a serene Japanese-inspired dining room: the perfect setting to savor the meticulously prepared multi-course tasting menu.
