Here are 7 Dinning Hot Spots in San Francisco:
1. Eight Tables by George Chen
Above Chinatown’s bustling China Live restaurant and market, there’s a serene escape in the form of Eight Tables, a fine-dining restaurant based on the private chateau cuisine of China (called si fang cai). Restaurateur and chef George Chen based the restaurant on dining experiences in homes of the elite in China, and he spared no expense in its design. The multi-course menu ($225) includes luxurious versions of Chinese dishes like foie gras dumplings, and har gow with caviar. If excellent dumplings and a much lower bill are more your thing, stay downstairs for lunch or dinner at China Live. https://eighttables.com/ Make your reservation with opentable.com
2. The Snug
A talented group of young industry vets has opened what’s definitely Pac Height’s hippest new bar. It’s got great craft cocktails, a local beer list, small producer wines by the glass, and a menu of upscale bar food from a former sous chef at Benu. It’s bringing some much-needed buzz to a rather sedate neighborhood. www.thesnugsf.com
3. International Smoke
As the old saying goes, “Everything Ayesha Curry touches is fire.” That includes International Smoke, the new collaboration between Curry and prolific chef Michael Mina. The SoMa barbecue restaurant has ribs for days, including American barbecue, Cuban “mojo” and Korean gochujang. The extensive menu also includes a magnificent seafood platter, wagyu shaking beef, and more deluxe dishes with fun tableside flourishes. Their moto, “Whatever you’re craving, we got you covered with 3 different flavors, American BBQ, Cuban “Mojo” and Korean Gochujang.” https://www.michaelmina.net/restaurants/san-francisco-bay-area/international-smoke/
4. Esan Classic
From the owners of Lers Ros, Esan Classic is an homage to the cuisine of Northeastern Thailand in the Tenderloin. It serves lunch, and dinner— and on weekend nights its open til 2 a.m. The menu is also influenced by funky flavors from Cambodia and Laos, offering dishes like fried sun-dried calamari, and curries with boar, venison, and alligator. https://esanclassic.com/
5. Kaya Restaurant
Chef Nigel Jones (Kingston 11) has made his first foray across the Bay to SF with a big debut in the former location of Alta in mid-Market. His Caribbean food now has the starring role with dishes like salt fish fritters and oxtail stew, plus rum-based drinks with a nod to tiki. Jones partnered with chef Daniel Patterson on this one to bring his popular cuisine to a neighborhood distinctly lacking in Caribbean flavors. Make your reservation with opentable.com
6. Son’s Addition
This 24th Street newcomer is a laid-back neighborhood spot with high-profile food from chef Nick Cobarruvias (previously chef de cuisine of Marlowe) and co-owner Anna Sager Cobarruvias (the two are married). A mixture of well-priced small and large plates like bacon-kimchi deviled eggs or poached chicken served with coconut rice, fermented soybean salsa, and crispy skin are on the seasonally changing menu. And it has an affordable wine list, with many bottles priced around $40 or under. www.sonsaddition.com
7. RT Rotisserie
Sara and Evan Rich (Rich Table) have launched a fast-casual restaurant that’s more than just a quickie roast chicken place. True to its name, the rotisserie is the star, with roast pork belly, chicken, and cauliflower available on salads or in sandwiches. Don’t sleep on the RTR salad, which is a crunchy, herby star, or on the excellent seasonal soft serve. www.toasttab.com/rt-rotisserie/giftcards
