People ask me where to eat. So here ya go.
They have one of the cocktail menus in Fidi and their bar menu is good value since you can order a la carte and they are Michelin starred. If you are already going to pay $15 for a cocktail, pay $15 for a great one here.
Good value for an intimate four course meal ($55). Had the chef and his team host a private party of 50+ people for my birthday and they were great. Young team of chill bros but they have good energy. They also let me bring in 18 bottles of Veuve Clicquot to serve to my guests and didn't charge me a corkage fee which was lovely budget-wise.
This gem in El Cerrito has only 8 seats for every omakase seating and is run by a talented Japanese couple. $60 pp omakase. I had my birthday here two years ago and return at least once a year, usually reserving all the seats in the restaurant.
This small Japanese restaurant in the Castro has great tofu, sushi, and Strawberry mochi ice cream. Get the strawberry mochi ice cream.
Have come here for every new restaurant experiment. Very generous portions served family style. Usually ($50-$60). Recently their BBQ pop up with Steph Curry's Wife was a smash success.
