MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Located around the corner from the epoch-making Fillmore Theater, The Progress is a creative expression of the union between top flavors and unique textures. Its kitchen team continues to execute a tome of ingenious dishes that are, in contrast, presented simply and carefully. The restaurant is flanked by dining hot spots, but regulars are here at all hours for its striking NorCal-meets-Nordic setting, warm, welcoming service, and notably ambitious cooking.

Floor-to-ceiling windows, low lighting and a gentle soundtrack lull diners into a meal that practically sings. The menu may offer dishes meant to be enjoyed family-style, but go ahead and savor such luscious small plates as sturgeon caviar with light, crispy potato chips or a seamless pairing of heirloom tomatoes, Fiscalini cheddar, and almond romesco. Marinated in leche de tigre, thick fillets of halibut ceviche may then be combined with chilies and cucumber-coriander broth for a refreshing and fragrant feast.

Save some indulgence for the end though, with the Josey Baker-red wheat apple fritter dredged in cinnamon-granulated sugar. Match this with a glass from their truly special wine list and find yourself craving more and more.
