Description

SF Weekly's Description

Commonwealth is a collectively owned American restaurant with good crowd, a do-good mission (a portion of the tasting menu goes to local nonprofits), and a high-wire chef. Once an ugly taqueria, the Mission District building has undergone a Pygmalion transformation, now spare and welcoming. Chef Jason Fox does things like fry shishito peppers with rose petals, serve cured foie gras with preserved-plum paste and nori toast, and deconstruct a s'more into chocolate ganache, cardamom marshmallows, and burnt-honey ice cream. The food can tilt so far into stunt cooking that it stumbles, but Fox also produces complicated pleasures unlike anything else in town, and for a half to a third of the price of anything similar. It's experimental dining for Mission budgets.

Tips from foursquare

  • Bon Appetit Magazine on 03/30/11

    Chef Jason Fox harmonizes a dizzying array of int'l ingredients - including sea urchin w/ sweet potato tempura, chrysanthemum leaf, shiso, scallion, & yuzu kosho. Also try the squid & pork belly!

  • AskMen on 08/17/10

    One of the most anticipated restaurant openings in a long time. You should know that the fare is called “progressive American” & a portion of your bill goes to charity.

    Chase Jason Fox’s creative, elegant food by voting a charity for the resto to donate a portion of its profits to.
