San Francisco and Area

Restaurant Reviews


Angler is by the same group which owns the 3 Michelin Star restaurant Saison in San Francisco. The focus is on seafood.

One of the first things you will notice upon entering is the open kitchen with wood fired stoves and smokers.

For dessert, a New Orleans. This was ice cream with iced chicory on top. Service was good and food was outstanding. I would definitely come back. I wish they had uni on the menu this day, but I will have to come back when they do. 9/10

Single Thread (Sonoma)

Single Thread is a three Michelin Star restaurant (#91 on the World’s “50” best) located in Healdsburg, California, about 1-1.5 hours drive from San Francisco, in Sonoma.

What interested me about this meal, was the it was inspired by Japanese Kaiseki dining. I found the flavors to be simple, clean and fresh. The presentation was beautiful.

Upon entering the restaurant, you are greeted by an open view of the kitchen, and served some tea.

The Restaurant at Meadowood (Napa)

Last week, I attended a Wall Street Journal + (WSJ+) dinner at the restaurant at Meadowood. I was curious as to how this meal would compare to the other three Michelin star restaurants in the area, namely, Single Thread and The French Laundry.

Note that its been a couple of years since I went to the French Laundry, and the meal I had at Meadowood was part of an event, so I do not know how indicative it is of the restaurant’s regular tasting menu.

I also stayed at the resort which I will review in a later post.
