A view of San Francisco Bay from the Mandarin Oriental hotel

A view of San Francisco Bay from the Mandarin Oriental hotel

Since the Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco is located in the third tallest commercial building in the City by the Bay, guests are sure to be getting a view—if the fog is gone. The day I went, the fog was obviously not there. And, I have to admit, I stayed in my room much longer to tour the city from my bed instead of from the streets.
At lunchtime, I arose to experience the cuisine of chef Rick Bartram at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, Silks. There is no view from there, so diners can concentrate all of their attention on his cuisine: modern, light and elegantly spiced, blending local organic ingredients with flavors of the East where Bartram has worked in the past. Discover it below in pictures, before heading there yourselves.
