Lonely Planet review

San Francisco's favorite culinary son and winner of the James Beard Award has reinvented his posh namesake restaurant, which spawned an empire of 16 others around the country. Gone is the multicourse, silver-service European luxe, in favor of more lighthearted, á la carte French-Japanese cooking that blurs the lines between formal and casual. There's still caviar, but also a foie gras PB&J. Signature mains still include lobster pot pie, but now it's served deconstructed. The cavernous dining room, with its massive mirrors angled just-right for people-watching, feels austerely elegant, and the bar is a happening spot for cocktails and small bites. Reservations essential.
