At Benu, chef Corey Lee works the same magic he brought to the cuisine at French Laundry, earning this San Francisco restaurant three Michelin stars and an AAA Five Diamond rating. Inventively fusing Korean and Chinese influences and culinary references, Lee’s famed xiao long bao and his version of a thousand-year-old quail egg are a delight. At Benu, even the dining room is designed to highlight the food - keeping a minimalist tone so as not to distract from the table. Wine pairings are a worthy investment, thanks to beverage director Yoon Ha’s creative combinations.
