Twenty Five Lusk Restaurant Review

: San Francisco doesn’t have too many see-and-be-seen restaurants, as much of the city pretends to be too cool for anything Twenty Five Lusk, however, has changed that game. Tucked down a SoMa alleyway, the multi-level bar and lounge designed by Cass Calder Smith has wooed the city’s jetset out of hiding. Downstairs, an enormous and impeccably styled lounge is outfitted with a sweeping bar, plush couches and futuristic Scandinavian fire orbs. Upstairs, the main dining room is a blend of glass, wood, steel, brick and stone, all of which work together to evince industrialized sophistication. Booths and tables are scattered across the asymmetrical floor and offer unexpected privacy. The glamour and cohesiveness of Twenty Five Lusk’s intricate décor isn’t always reflected in its menu, however. Oxtail is barely present in ginger oxtail ravioli, and black trumpet risotto is thrown off balance by pickled cucumbers. Steelhead trout, however, was balanced and comforting. Desserts are as thoughtfully designed as the physical space as with a deconstructed rosehips parfait strewn with candied kumquats and almonds. Cocktail and wine lovers will enjoy both extensive lists.
