“Haute Chinese” dining in downtown SF

Source: Hakkasan

Why go? The large, elegant 170-seat Cantonese restaurant may be part of an international chain, but it serves the most refined Chinese food in the area. The dining room overlooks Market Street and is a prime stop for a dim sum lunch or a relaxed multicourse dinner.

What to order? Specialties include stir-fried mushrooms in lettuce cups, pan-seared Shanghai dumplings, stir-fried black pepper rib eye with Merlot, and locally inspired dishes such as Sichuan lamb tenderloin.

Pipsqueak tip We suggest going during lunch where there is more space to park your stroller and less of a scene (the evening/ night-time crowd at the bar can get noisy); plus they offer a “Taste of Hakkasan” lunch tasting menu during the week from 1130-230pm.
