An adventurous, inventive, delicious, thoughtful contemporary American restaurant [CA native].
Whether it's savory pancakes stacked with local cheese or eggplant "fries," the flavor profiles are always eye-opening. [Eater 38 Member]
Bon Appetit's 2012 winner 'Best New Restaurant in America' - Congrats! Well deserved!
Ask for the extinct menu. 10k will get you 5oz of bald eagle. Worth every penny.
Say yes to everything.
Sit down and have a chat with Mark Twain, then enjoy the prime rib :)
Want a prime-time reservation? Wake up at around 4 AM 60 days before your date of choice. It's worth it!
It's gotta be one of the most fun restaurants I've ever visited! Long lineups, impossible te reserve, but so worth it!
Eat here as soon as you can. Build up an appetite and then eat everything.
Even late reservation are fine -- the dim sum style means there is food on your table just seconds after you sit down, and you won't be hungry for long.
"The food is 'dim sum'. Order a few hot items off the menu but also try the items brought around on carts or trays. It was all universally delicious and novel. It's worth a visit if you're in town."
Oh my god. Get the burrata.
Ice cream sandwich. On point. Save room for it.
Quail, lobster salad, octopus, burrata garlic bread and birdseed dessert were delish!
Waiters roam the room serving innovative small bites from dim-sum-style carts. The seafood selections are particularly worth flagging down for delicacies like black-garlic aioli on a fried nori chip.
Def get the sturgeon pancake, hamachi, state bird, duck, and ice cream sandwiches! Get a reservation or show up and wait in line at 5pm for 530 seating.
It's worth the wait... Stand in the "sweet spot" to get seated faster and bond with the awesome chefs.
You can't miss with the fish. Stuart, Katie and team do wonders with red trout.
Request the server choose desserts for you; yes, more than one.
Must try the glazed pork ribs!
All but one table is reservation only. Book Early! Ps no bar area but fat angel and social study are nearby
Omg. Best meal in SF
The garlic bread burrata was a stunner.
Try and sit at the Chef's table on the stools opposite the big man himself - down to earth guy - and he'll lead the charge. Killer chocolate and ricotta cheese - is intense!
Just... Yes. Yes to all of the things. ALL OF THE THINGS.
Just the best meal in SF.
Get the State Bird (fried quail) it's delicious! Menu does change weekly based on seasonal items but if its available get it.
California state bird
Not an Asian restaurant yet they offer dim sum style service with a few items offered on menu. gets food in your belly quickly.
Make a reservation on their website (via Urbanspoon - not Open Table).
Slip the food runner a $20 and you'll eat very well.
Don't order, just take the dishes offered to you until you're satiated. Also, here's a photo of the olive oil ice cream with rhubarb…
Order the Paul Mathew Russian River Valley Pinot to go with your dinner. Fairly priced and quite tasty.
This place is awesome
Hands down one of my favorite restaurants in the US and the world…!
The wait is too long and the reservation system really sucks. The food is just ok, I would say not worth the wait.
Get: guinea hen dumpling, hamachi on nori cracker and state bird. MUST get: spicy Dungeness crab with kimchi, brandade with smoked sturgeon and spiced cocoa nib ice cream sandwich.
One Michelin star
If you're planning to walk-in, go early (5) to put your name down. Come back after a movie and a drink and you should be in time for a 9pm dinner!
Dim sum-style dishes are delicious fun. Order off the menu for "state bird" (chicken-fried quail) or fried pork belly. – Green Guide Editor
Ice cream sandwich!
It's so good Ive bookmarked their res page hoping for an opening. Recommend skipping menu ordering all together. Perfect to go as a group of 4 so you can try a bite everything the cart comes by with!
Try everything and enjoy the foodgasm.
Never been but want to go.
CLOSED (maybe just for renovations). Check before heading over.
Just say yes.
Go with 3 other people so you can try EVERYTHING
Duck pâté mousse with almond biscuit, hamachi nori graffiti, anchovy sesame pancake and quinoa tahini corn salad. Amazing service despite the crazy line (came at 5:30pm for 9pm seating?)
not dimsum as listed. "american" food in dimsum portions. basically american tapas. resos required, have to go a while in advance.
