Oysters, salmon and beef cooked perfectly with heavenly sides and sauces. Ingredients such as gooseberries, passion fruit, elderflower and many more add an exquisite touch. My favorite courses were the ahi tartar and the coconut mouse.

Prefix six course menu is all that’s offered. So your choices within those is all you have. The meal wasn’t bad but for almost $500, including tip, I want my socks knocked off. My socks are still on. There were some extra goodies from the...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
