One of San Francisco’s more charming restaurants is reopening this Thursday July 14th. ~MASON PACIFIC~ had a kitchen fire in March and is now back on the scene. Another new fixture in the kitchen is chef Max Mackinnon, who is launching a brand-new menu. The Cali native was previously the chef-owner of Pistou in Burlington, Vermont, and has cooked at Restaurant Relae in Copenhagen, Fish & Game in Hudson, New York, and most recently Rose’s Luxury in Washington, D.C. He was also a commis in the 2011 Bocuse d’Or competition, so you know this guy has his sauces down.

Take a look at his new menu, which includes dishes like braised lamb with flowering broccoli and citrus broth. There’s also a bar menu since this is such a great place to swing by for a glass of wine (or two) and a few small plates. Master Sommelier Dustin Wilson (maybe you saw him in Somm and Uncorked?) and managing partner Eric Railsback (who is also a partner in Lieu Dit winery) will continue to run the rocking wine program.
