Faith & Flower Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: Even though the space now occupied by Faith & Flower was previously a restaurant, it took a year for the partners to redecorate it (and they didn’t even change the layout and the kitchen!). Yes, it’s sprawling, but all of the thought, effort and many dollars they put into creating a unique décor paid off. Divided into four sections (bar, tables by the bar, long dining room and a private room that can seat up to 52), the venue has an Art Deco feel, and many of the decorative elements give it a whimsical atmosphere. There are no tablecloths, but the huge crystal chandelier at the entrance, the wine tower, white ostrich feathers on a wall, golden velvet banquette, the private dining room armoire and its sun made of various golden strings, the tree formed by hand mirrors, white drapes along the high windows, and the glasses, silverware and variety of plates provide quite an elegant look.

Food & Drinks: Chef Michael Hung's globally influenced California fare might feature steak tartare with miso cream and black sesame to start. The hits continue with wood-oven baked pizzas and oxtail agnolotti with bone marrow butter, nectarine conserva and beef tendon chicharrones. Serious carnivores will crave the Angus rib-eye grilled over mesquite. For dessert, you might encounter bananas Foster with Okinawan black sugar caramel. There is a worldly wine list with decent prices plus an impressive cocktail menu featuring a killer Negroni.
