Michael Mina, San Francisco, CA

Michael Mina Restaurant Review

: Michael Mina's flagship restaurant presents a cool, sleek dining room touting a minimalist design, majestic bar and high ceilings. The crowd is a convivial mix of young downtowners and older patrons, setting a tone of vivacity mingled with established old guard. Mina's three-course, prix-fixe menu includes the chef’s signature "trios" --- the preparation of one ingredient or dish three ways. Course one might feature the classic ahi tartare, or a trio of Morro Bay abalone. Course two could be the hay-smoked rib-eye with red wine jus, or the trio of Liberty Farms duck and foie gras, with cuts from throughout the bird. Course three is a trio, either of desserts or cheeses. Dark chocolate pairs with caramel and apple, while pear, hazelnut and lemon flavors meet with the praline parfait. Executive chef Raj Dixit is at the helm in the kitchen, and a chef tasting menu is also offered. The well-curated wine list is one of the best in the city.
