Kevin Schantz at The Ramen Bar

Bio

It was at this time that Schantz met the late Chris L’Hommedieu and eventually followed him to Prospect restaurant in San Francisco. After Prospect, Chris and Kevin made their way to the Ringside Grill in Portland, Oregon. Schantz still calls L’Hommedieu one of his greatest mentors, and an influencer and friend. He returned to San Francisco again as the Head Chef at Corridor. Once Corridor was up and running he started to help out at Trestle. After spending a year with the Hi Neighbor Group, Kevin began searching for his next big challenge. When he had the opportunity to rejoin the MINA Group family at PABU San Francisco, he jumped at the chance.

Chef Gracie Nguyen reviews Happy spoon oyster at Pabu Izakaya
$$$ | Japanese
Financial District
"I see why it is called the "happy spoon," as it has some of my favorite flavors and ingredients in Japanese food—oyster, uni, roe and ponzu cream. One perfect bite of happy! The textures are awesome, with the little pop of the roe and the smooth oyster and uni."
