Slanted Door Restaurant Review:

First opened in San Francisco's Mission District in 1995, Charles Phan's restaurant Slanted Door now anchors the northeastern corner of the Ferry Building and boasts dramatic views of the bay from its wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. Light and airy, the stylish, modern dining room beckons with sleek booths, light wood tables and colorful art. An expansive bar and lounge features long leather couches and low tables. Slanted Door is not your average Vietnamese restaurant. The wine list has been thoughtfully paired with the food, the moneyed vibe is see-and-be-seen, and the pastry chef turns out an amazing chocolate cake. Phan's food adds California flair to authentic Vietnamese flavors and techniques. Crispy imperial rolls served with mint, lettuce, vermicelli and light vinaigrette are a good way to begin. 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 nice choices. Beers and specialty teas are offered in addition to the wines.
