SF Weekly's Description

What makes food art, and not just a meal? At Atelier Crenn, Dominique Crenn is pursuing that very question in the form of modernist, gardencentric cuisine developed in partnership with Gouge Eye Farm, north of Sacramento, which currently supplies her with most of her vegetables and meats. The restaurant's format: to serve three-, five-, and ten-course tasting meals whose dishes are odes to the season. The menu descriptions, with titles like "The Sea" and "Walk in the Forest," read like Debussy préludes. And Crenn's plates are landscapes in themselves, terraced in soils, gardens, and honest-to-god rocks. While the execution varies from exquisite to overwrought, it's best to take a gamble on the whole shebang, with its multiple interludes and reliably astounding desserts from pastry chef Juan Contreras.

  • La Dolce Vita on 12/21/11

    One Michelin star.

  • Derek D. on 02/15/11

    Go big or go home. The tasting menu with the wine paring is amazing. Some of the most interesting food I've had recently.

  • TOWN&COUNTRY on 02/28/12

    From Monterey Bay abalone with yuzu kosho dashi gel to an eel fumé with dill, cucumber, potato, pomelo and coriander, dinner at Atelier Crenn is sure to be the least boring meal you will ever eat.

  • Claudine C. on 01/12/13

    2 Michelin Stars for 2013.

  • Asterisk SF Magazine on 02/22/13

    Let Chef Dominique Crenn take you down the rabbit hole to a wonderland of sensual poetry in the form of food. A wine pairing is highly recommended; the Sommelier is outstanding.
