THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Masa's Restaurant Review

: LONGTIME NOB HILL RESTAURANT MASA’S, KNOWN FOR ITS CREATIVE FRENCH-CALIFORNIA CUISINE, HAS CLOSED ITS DOORS Masa's came full circle in the kitchen when former chef Julian Serrano's one-time stagiaire Richard Reddington signed on as temporary chef in residence when Ron Siegel departed. Now Gregory Short, an alum of The French Laundry and former chef de cuisine at The Loft at Montage Laguna Beach, is the executive chef. Four-course and nine-course menus are offered. Each has its glories, like the chilled Dungeness crab with harissa couscous; wild striped bass, Japanese crosnes (artichokes), broccoli di ciccio, celeriac and matsutake mushrooms; and Prime beef with quince purée, pine nuts, currants, spinach, sherry vinegar sauce, rosemary oil and goat cheese. Dessert may come in the form of a velouté of bittersweet chocolate with cinnamon stick ice cream. The dining room maintains a quiet elegance with moody chocolate-brown walls and tasteful, romantic lighting. The gratifying wine list and gracious service deserve high marks.
