Circa Restaurant Review

: Renowned designer Michael Brennan created this upscale Marina District space that flows easily from the main dining area to the bar. Oversize black and white photographs of flowers float on backlit screens and glass beads drip from the ceiling, catching light and reflecting off the warm hues of browns and grays on the walls. Executive chef Daniel Sudar may offer dishes such as mini chicken and chorizo tacos, olive oil-poached Hawaiian butterfish, and a grilled Niman Ranch beef burger. Brunch remains the meal of the day at this hot-spot, bringing in singles by the dozens who are working off a hangover from the night before or working toward another one with the restaurant's bottomless mimosas special.
