In its third incarnation, anchoring the foodie paradise and transportation hub that is the Ferry Building, the justly famed Slanted Door is chicer and busier than ever. But its superbly conceived, seasonal, spicy and herbal Vietnamese fare, made with top-notch ingredients, is worth the trouble it takes to get a reservation. Favorite dishes at this Embarcadero restaurant include the barbecued pork ribs, crab cellophane noodles, and inventive desserts, though the whole menu is reliably good. Wonderful cocktails are a draw at the spacious bar-lounge.

100% worth the hype. Amazing modern Vietnamese. The family style menu allows for trying multiple dishes - I truly suggest going with a group so you can try as many as possible. Highlights include the crispy imperial rolls (even if you're just a party of two, get the full order) and halibut vermicelli. Reservations definitely recommended, and try to hit it up when the Ferry Building stalls are open because there's so much good foodie shopping to be had before/after your meal!
Mai tai at Zaré at Fly Trap -- Zaré's top-shelf rendition of Trader Vic's most famous creation involves freshly squeezed lime juice, spicy-smoky Appleton Estate Jamaican rum, a shot of Cointreau, and Small Hand's artisanal almond-apricot orgeat, stirred with ice and served on the rocks with a halved lime and a sprig of mint. It's a sweet, floral, citrusy triumph. Irish coffee at the Gold Dust Lounge -- Despite its red-plush gilded-bordello tourist-trap trappings, the Gold Dust... More »
If you'd ask us one of our San Francisco restaurant dreams, we'd have told you we longed for a Slanted Door that was just a touch more consumer-friendly: easier to get into, less noisy, and, while we're at it, why not cheaper? The Chans must have read our mind, because they've opened a large outpost called Out the Door, which occupies its own modern space, just off the Westfield Centre lower-level food court. An anteroom offers take-out from a counter and shelves filled with Asian... More »
Once the myriad fans of the Slanted Door's extraordinary high-style Vietnamese cuisine had gotten over the restaurant's two moves to increasingly upscale locations (from the Mission to Brannan Street to the Ferry Building) and braved the tedious reservation lines (complete with seven-digit confirmation numbers), they looked around and realized that the new airy, modern digs were pretty swell, the bay views were beautiful, and the food was as delicious as ever. Longtime favorites include... More »
