THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Slanted Door Restaurant Review

: A temporary, yearlong move to this airy, and larger, Embarcadero location is allowing the original Mission location to be expanded and redesigned. Slanted Door is not a typical Vietnamese restaurant. The wine list has been thoughtfully paired with the food, the d├ęcor is sleek, the art is large, and the pastry chef turns out an amazing chocolate cake. The food is creative, bringing California flair to authentic Asian flavors and techniques. Crispy imperial rolls served with mint, lettuce, vermicelli and light vinaigrette are a perfect way to begin. The chicken simmered in a clay pot with caramel sauce, ginger and shallots, or the shaking beef, tender cubes of filet mignon stir-fried with garlic and served over lettuce, are both excellent. Beers and specialty teas are offered in addition to the wines.
