Michael Mina Restaurant Review

: Michael Mina's signature "trios" --- the preparation of one ingredient or dish three ways, met with acclaim in his early years --- has returned to the chef's flagship restaurant. In Mina's three-course, prix-fixe menu of options, course one might feature the chef's classic tuna tartare, or a trio of sashimi. Course two could be the herb-roasted lamb chop, or the trio of Liberty Farms duck and foie gras three ways, with cuts from throughout the bird. Course three is a trio, either of desserts or cheeses. The salted chocolate Macallan 18 caramel sauce with the chef's classic beignets epitomizes the Mina approach: beautiful presentation, a combination of distinct flavor profiles into a holistic one and exceptional attention to detail. The well-curated wine list is one of the best in the city. The cool, sleek dining room touts 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. In addition to Mina, who you will often see greeting guests in the dining room, managing chef and owner Ron Siegel (The Dining Room at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco) is in the kitchen as executive chef. Additional prix-fixe menus are also offered.
