SF Weekly's Description

Sometimes billed as Boulevard's more casual, edgier spinoff, Prospect is more like a Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, casual only to the moneyed classes. The dining room of this California and New American restaurant is so vast you could ride a pony up and down its aisles, and framed in Stonehenge-sized pillars, yet acres of browns and bronzes give the room a surprisingly warmth. The food is urbane, subtle, playful in the mannered tones of an 18th-century French noble. The dishes looks like a bonsai landscape, fronds and seedlings sprouting out of its crevices, and the chef buffs away strong contrasts and sharp flavors. A black cod filet is delicately perfumed with Thai red curry and showered in snap-pea shavings; a quivering pork belly is set on a bed of orange-scented whole grains with a fennel slaw. The most daring aspect of this Embarcadero restaurant may be Brooke Arthur's cocktail menu, a collection of tricks and curiosities.

    Boulevard-honed Ravi Kapur’s painstaking attention to detail pays off in pictorially exquisite dishes with equally harmonious flavor balance. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Bon Appetit Magazine on 03/30/11

    Try the rich, crispy pig's-trotter croquettes paired w/ luscious pig's-head salumi & bright chile-lime vinaigrette. The seared calamari & octopus bring char-grilled notes to spicy chorizo & clams.

  • AskMen on 11/25/10

    From the simple & delicious green goddess salad to local Dungeness crab, the flavors teased out of every dish are a constant surprise. The weekend brunch has lots of Southern favorites.
