Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Dried porcini doughnuts
$$$, Modern, Full Bar, New American, Hayes Valley
"This dish is a form of gluttony that I have no reservations about diving into! The combination of textures and flavors is like nothing else I've tried in San Francisco. The first two times I went here, I was fortunate enough to enjoy chef Evan's tasting menu. On both occasions the porcini donuts came out with the appetizers and were so good that I had to order them again after dinner and dessert. So it was the dessert to my desserts. You cannot afford to miss this."

$$$, Modern, Full Bar, New American, Hayes Valley
"Great concept and great idea that delivers on flavor—truly amazing! These donuts are light, savory, and salty. It's a toss-up between the porcini doughnuts and the sardine chips. I have a great experience every time I come here."
