Probably the least under-the-radar restaurant in San Francisco, this unique SoMa spot has earned itself three Michelin stars and a place on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants List two years running. Chef Joshua Skenes, a master of luxury on the plate, has managed to keep Saison’s atmosphere from drifting into stuffy elegance; the industrial space with its open kitchen is relaxed and engaging. On the daily tasting menu, you’ll find rotating contemporary dishes, many with Japanese influences, prepared with novel cooking techniques like hot coals on a cooking grate instead of a typical stove. Saison boasts one of the best wine cellars in the city―particularly for Burgundy fans. Come early and enjoy a cocktail at the restaurant’s chic bar and lounge.
