Chef Ravi Kapur came up in San Francisco’s seminal Boulevard kitchen, but at his popular Lower Nob Hill restaurant, he’s cooking soul food inspired by his Hawaiian roots, with a NorCal ingredient-driven spin. Get your “ohana” (family) together and feast on an appealing menu full of flavor, like the tuna poke on nori chips and the beef tongue with kimchee in house-made poppy seed buns (and then there’s the off-the-menu house-made Spam). The menu will keep you returning again and again, because it’s impossible to make your way through it in a couple visits. There’s a full bar (plus the reservations-only Louie’s Gen-Gen Room downstairs) and a smart wine list, and the space has a lively vibe with an open kitchen, exposed brick and ever-busy bar with walk-ins lingering and hoping to score a table.
