THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Home on Union Restaurant Review:

When Home opened on Market Street serving well-priced cut-above comfort food in an upscale setting, everyone shook their heads in wonderment: Why hadn't anyone thought of this before? Now fans of the concept have another Home in the remodeled space that housed Café de Paris L'Entrecôte for nearly 30 years. The restaurant has been updated with buttery walls, a hefty bar and bright red banquettes. The menu reflects the Marina crowd---a mix of families, business associates and pre-bar hoppers---shifting from pure comfort to healthier, more contemporary cuisine that offers organic produce, wild-caught fish and humanely raised meats and poultry. Executive chef Jeff Banker honed his chops at Acme with Traci Des Jardins and also did stints at Post Rio, Bix and Lucas Carton in Paris. His eclectic background serves him well on diverse dishes like Moroccan braised lamb shank with almond and currant couscous, and grilled wild salmon with corn and roasted pepper relish. Torn butter lettuce salad with blue cheese and spicy pepitas in tart red wine vinaigrette makes a snappy starter, while tender Niman Ranch pot roast and an earthy wild mushroom pappardelle are entrée highlights. Former Gary Danko wine director Christie Dufault devised the California-focused list.
