Saison (セゾン)


178 Townsend Street

私たち夫婦の中では9月と言えば、結婚記念日なので、今年も行きたかったレストランの1つである「セゾン」に行ってきました。今年日本に行った時に東京にある「神楽坂 石かわ」に行ったのですが、そこのシェフが「先日サンフランシスコに行った時にセゾンに行ってすごく美味しかった」と言っていたので、サンフランシスコに住んでいるからには是非とも行きたいと思っていたので、この日をすごく楽しみにしていました。それでは、1品1品ご紹介していきます。

Zuni Cafe – Mid Market, San Francisco

Zuni Cafe

1658 Market Street

Zuni Cafe is a historical landmark in the San Francisco dining scene. In a city that is flooded with new, trendy, ‘foodie’ dining spots, Zuni has been consistently pumping  out cult level classic dishes for nearly forty years.  After a lengthy period of time on our waiting list, we finally made it to this San Francisco staple.

Alexander’s Steakhouse – SOMA, San Francisco

Alexander’s Steakhouse

448 Brannan Street

A few years ago, one random Saturday afternoon during a stroll through SOMA we walked past Alexander’s Steakhouse.  A quick scan of the posted menu, loaded with various cuts of steak, was all I needed to add the place to the ever-growing restaurant list – all we needed was the excuse to go.  Thank you, birthday.

Aster – The Mission, San Francisco


1001 Gurerrero Street

After a medium term break of traveling to Japan twice and continually eating (just not writing about it), we are firing up the old word processor for round two.  Our first meal back on the horse was at Aster, a new establishment filling in the former Beast and the Hare location. Aster is the work of Outerlands chef Brett Cooper and is a part of the Daniel Patterson Group (Coi); expectations have been set.

Lazy Bear (レイジーベアー)、ミッション、サンフランシスコ

 Lazy Bear

3416 19th Street, San Francisco

最近ミッション地区に出来た新しいレストラン「Lazy Bear」!!このレストランの面白い所は、まずウェブサイトから日時指定の食事チケットを買います。このプロセスを踏まないと当日入れないということですね。でも、とても人気のあるレストランなので、特に週末の場合は予約開始後すぐにチケットがなくなってしまうことが多いようです。また、コースも1種類(ベジタリアン用は別途リクエスト可の模様)しかなく、大きなテーブルに他の人と一緒に座り且つ、皆同時にお料理がサーブされる形式をとっています。そんな一見変わったレストラン体験記です。

Lazy Bear – The Mission, San Francisco

Lazy Bear

3416 19th Street

It is seldom that a restaurant is as universally praised, so quickly after opening, as Lazy Bear is.  Articles and blogs alike shower Lazy Bear with positive comments about the amazing and innovative dishes and an overall fantastic communal dining experience.  Scoring a seat, especially on a weekend, can be a challenge – but having finally done so we  were absolutely stoked to check out the most hyped up place in the city.

Flour + Water – Mission, San Francisco

Flour + Water

2401 Harrison Street

Flour + Water, situated in the middle of the Mission, has earned quite a reputation for the handmade pasta they’ve been making daily and slinging for the last five years.   Our first impression at Flour + Water a year or so back was good enough that we decided to return for more.

Kusakabe – FiDi, San Francisco


584 Washington Street

Kusakabe is an omakase only, kaiseki restaurant with a focus on edomae style sushi.  Said in plain English, a Japanese course menu designed with seasonal ingredients centered around traditionally prepared sushi.   Kusakabe falls into the same market as other newish Japanese restaurants such as Maruya and Saru among others we have yet to explore.
