After a wonderful experience at Jiro SF, the temporary guest chef/collaboration between chef Jiro Lin and Joshua Skenes at ~SAISON~’s chef counter, it’s great to hear that the pair’s collaboration has been extended. Initially, the plan was that the sushi experience would end May 30th, but now Lin and Skenes have decided to keep their partnership going.

Five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday, the pair will be serving together at the eight-seat chef’s counter, with each chef contributing various courses (for example, Skenes could include Saison reserve caviar and grilled seaweed bread, while Jiro would serve nigiri like golden eye snapper and live spot prawns).

The omakase-style tasting menu is rather free-form: it starts at $225 per person, and diners are welcome to eat as much, or as little, as they like. Wine pairings from Mark Bright are available starting at $100 per person. Reservations can be made by calling 415-716-6008.
