MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

If you’re planning a splurge meal in San Francisco, then Michael Mina is a surefire bet. The celebrated,

Cairo-born chef’s eponymous flagship showcases his native Middle Eastern flavors, paired with his formidable talents as a classically trained artisan. The result is a sublime, memorable meal that you won’t soon forget. If visions of cauliflower "schnitzel" with eggplant purée, capers, and labneh; or tender little ricotta gnudi in a hearty lamb sugo with Castelvetrano olives and parsley come to mind, then you're on the right track. Dinner is a prix-fixe affair, but those looking to sample at lunchtime will find a great à la carte selection along with a wonderful, family-style variation called the "Middle'terranea Tasting" that offers a choice of mezze, main, sides, and dessert. Be sure to spend time with the wine list, starring an impressive roster of familiar labels and unusual varietals.

The crisp, elegant dining room boasts lofty ceilings, large framed mirrors and alluring flower arrangements. Polished and contemporary, the setting offers both comfort and beauty to guests, who run the gamut from business tycoons and power players to date night duos and celebrating groups.
