This was the first place in San Fran that I made reservations for, after our flight, before even our hotels. This was the second Asian place in the two days, however it was Burmese yesterday, Vietnamese this time.
The location was great, in the financial district by the water with the Bay Bridge views. I never knew the Bay Bridge was so glamorous, with it’s fancy lighting and all.
The place was very urban, cool and was packed even at 9:15, but certainly not by New York standards.
We had to go to the airport after our dinner to pick up a car, come back to the town to Hotel Whitcomb to pick up our luggage and then head for Sonoma county. I guess, with that in the back of our minds, we were trying to wrap up as soon as possible. So we did not have the best of times there, and same goes for the food.
Daikon rice cakes ***.5
shiitake mushroom, shallot, sweet chili soy
Akin to the chive cakes.
Crispy fava beans **
Crispy tofu ****
Overall, an Eat at best, if you have access to other fancy places.
