SF Weekly's Description

The Pacific Heights incarnation of Elizabeth Falkner's name-making restaurant is a bit disjointed: the pastry shop warring with the sit-down restaurant, the minimalist decor at odds with the sophisticated whimsy of Falkner's desserts. Chef Amy Glaze's menus incorporate both tweaked classics (a wonderfully deconstructed beef stroganoff, Chinese chicken salad) and lighter, slightly more cerebral fare (beet-asparagus terrine, beet salad with beef heart) that falls flat as often as it succeeds. Falkner's desserts, though, are as wonderful as ever. Sweets such as her butterscotch-miso mousse and her love letter (raspberry-rose-black pepper cake) are a collage of flavors clipped from dozens of cuisines, with an eye out for the new.

Tips from foursquare

  • AskMen on 11/19/10

    The new location is a bit smaller but the d├ęcor & menu are upscale-neighborhoody. Everyone's favorite salad is still there, along with a slew of to-die-for cakes & strong coffee for the morning crowd.

  • Serious Eats on 09/27/11

    Our favorite is the Fig Cake with Salted Caramel Frosting. These two rich, mulitfaceted flavors make an irresistible combination, perfect for a crisp fall day.

  • Food Network on 10/31/11

    Chef Falkner's cakes and pastries have taken SF by storm since 1997. See if this pastry chef takes the cake on the new season of Next Iron Chef, Sundays at 9p|8c!
