At one time the best restaurant in San Francisco, Masa’s has suffered from its chef Julian Serrano moving on to, of all places, Las Vegas, which has become a popular place for celebrity chefs. Now the cooking is still good, but hardly worth the USD 150 a head price tag. The dining room is formal, in a somewhat unlikely basement of the charming but mid-range Vintage Court hotel. The wine list was good, including Chateau d’Yquem dessert wine by the (half) glass. Food is traditional French.
Excellent lemon tart at Elystan Place last night. https://t.co/Cr0Pl36Xz3
