From its location in an otherwise sleepy but upscale Presidio Heights neighbourhood, this chic, handsome restaurant has managed to set the city abuzz, and the scarcity of available reservations shouldn't put you off trying to experience chef Mark Sullivan's approach to fresh, inventive cooking. Once you're in, you're part of the scene, a locals-only feel where a lounge, a takeout area and a formal dining room all exist peacefully. Specialities of lobster and steak and other extravagances make the point that this is a place of comfort and style.
