Modern American

  • 90

Nightbird, an intimate, upscale, tasting menu-only restaurant, showcases a California-inspired, New American menu focused on local, seasonal ingredients in daily-changing form with dishes like rabbit roulade and summer squash in vadouvan curry sauce or poached lobster with chanterelle mushrooms and truffles. This Hayes Valley gem also houses the seductive Linden Room (accessible from the side alley or the dining room) pouring French and Californian wines and ever-changing, seasonal cocktails like the Crimson Hayes (brandy, beet, lemon verbena).
