Chef David Kinch and General Manager Michael Kean were in London last month to receive an award for #38 of the "World's 50 Best Restaurants." My friend Maggie was on hand for this spectacular event and upon hearing I was headed back to SF made me promise to dine at Manresa. So upon my arrival in San Francisco: step 1: rent car, step 2: make reservations at Manresa. Last night was the opening of their outdoor patio dining and their Modernista tasting menu. We started with a Cava (sparkling wine from Spain), Sherry and orange twist aperitif served with gougeres and from there we put ourselves into the hands of the very talented chef and his food and wine tasting menu.
