THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mason Pacific Restaurant Review

: This cozy neighborhood bistro with colorful cable cars rumbling past its front windows is a heartwarming exercise in contrasts: New American cuisine and nostalgia, luxury and rusticity. Chef Max Mackinnon’s seasonal menu is divided into several sections, including "Raw/Chilled" (scallop crudo, beef tartare, chicken liver mousse), "Land and Sea" (roasted chicken, poached trout, braised lamb), "Vegetables" (summer corn with squid, sour corn and celery) and "A Dish to Share" (dry-aged rib-eye with potato, spinach and red wine). An extensive wine list favors Italy and France; try the parsnip ice cream with almond, honey and cinnamon for dessert. Workers scrape crumbs off white-covered tables between courses, enhancing a smiling elegance that silently asks: "You realize you're being pampered, right?"
