I have told you about one of my favorite buildings in the city, The Ferry Building. I have also told you about some of my favorite stops there, Miette, Baccolone, and Hog Island Oyster Company. There is also a very famous restaurant called The Slanted Door, which I love.
The restaurant describes itself as creating modern Asian cuisine, and the food is meant to be shared (so bring your friends). Even if you are unfamiliar with Vietnamese cuisine, you will find lots of familiar flavors (think won ton soup and vermicelli). I recommend ordering a few dishes to sample and pass around. The bar also makes a mean cocktail.
If you are visiting San Francisco, this restaurant is worth checking out, but make reservations. Bonus, it is located right on the bay. If you have been, what did you think?
