In the beautifully dramatic room that once housed AQUA—where the eponymous chef began his illustrious career—Michael Mina still dazzles as the crown jewel of the Mina empire. A highly anticipated rebirth brings with it warm, rustic touches—out with white tablecloths, in with custom Japanese ceramics—breathing renewed life into one of San Francisco’s most celebrated dining destinations.
Michael Mina’s new ambiance may be more laid-back than its former self, but the culinary precision remains as exquisite as ever. Borrowing from Japanese cuisine in both technique and flavor, Chef Mina’s creations have retained their fine dining edge with spectacular presentations and clean, well-defined flavors. Innovative dishes, along with Mina signatures—including ahi tuna tartare and lobster pot pie—grace one of San Francisco’s most popular tasting menus, a brilliant testament to the eponymous chef’s epicurean evolution.
