Big 4 Restaurant Restaurant Review

: The Scarlet Huntington’s Big 4 Restaurant, a Nob Hill classic that celebrates the era of the four railroad tycoons for whom the restaurant is named, has reopened after a refresh. Longtime fans should find the spot updated but mostly unchanged --- the piano, deep booths and white tablecloths remain. Chef Kevin Scott (Jardinière, Hog Island Oyster Co.) pays homage to history with a frequently shifting selection of updated classics such as brioche french toast, oxtail soup, stuffed pork chops, steak tartare and crème brûlée. Each day of the week has a designated special; for instance, meatloaf on Monday and short ribs on Friday. Cocktails such as the Golden Spike (Sheep Dip scotch, apricot liqueur, Licor 43) and a largely California-sourced wine list also hail the city's heritage.
