MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Like the husband-and-wife team who own it, Lord Stanley is half European and half Californian. Superlative ingredients and a sun-filled space lend it an undeniable West Coast vibe, while house-made breads, confections and an intriguing wine list of European vintages make it clear that these chefs were trained across the pond.

Yet, this is a charming establishment right at home in its central Polk Street location, where windows offer a sweeping view of the neighborhood and a steady stream of locals fills the place. Inside, the dining room is furnished with small bistro tables, while a larger communal table on the balcony welcomes groups. Bare wood tabletops set with hand-crafted cutlery and warmed by candlelight set a simple and cozy atmosphere for enjoying meals that highlight artisanal and organic ingredients. Echoing the space, the cooking here is approachable yet refined. Creamy burrata is paired with vibrant red, semi-dried tomatoes while wild salmon is crisped to an amber perfection and studded with tender chunks of royal trumpet mushroom. The three-course weekday menu, served before 7.00 P.M., is a steal.

Be sure to quiz the attentive staff on the dishes—they’re happy to oblige.
