A thoughtful journey, an experience that delicately touched my palate. From the moment you set foot inside, you are addressed by name. A menu is prepared personally for you. Asian fusion kitchen collaboration at its finest.
While I enjoyed the tasting menu throughout, my top three favorite bite dishes were; 1. Oyster, pork belly, kimchi 2. Eel, feuille de brick, creme fraiche 3. Fresh and dried yuba, almond, white chocolate
It was fun. I learned a great deal. The staff was knowledgeable, cordial and functional. I even had a couple of laughs. The attention to detail was flawless, like the air it was natural. It’s been awhile since I’ve enjoyed such a well executed experience from a two star Michelin restaurant.
Notable(s): For the past three years, Benu has received two Michelin Stars.
The restaurant is housed in a historic building in the heart of the San Francisco’s SOMA district.
