Dining room at Slanted Door, San Francisco, CA

Slanted Door Restaurant Review

: The move from the Mission turned out to be a permanent one. The latest rendition of the ever-evolving Slanted Door anchors the northeastern corner of the Ferry Building Marketplace boasting smashing views of the bay from its wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Light and airy, the modern dining room carries on the original Slanted Door's sense of style with sleek booths, light wood tables and curiously colorful art. An expanded bar and lounge is tucked away from the view of the bay with long leather couches and low tables. Slanted Door remains an atypical 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. Charles Phan's 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.
