Sometimes a weekend getaway is just the thing to recharge your batteries. Fresh air, a city vibe and a little wine paired with great food usually does just the trick.

This visit to San Francisco, we chose to try a world renowned restaurant, Michael Mina located in the heart of the Financial District. The cuisine features Michael Mina’s sensibilities with Japanese ingredients and a French influence. The dinner menu is à la carte with the option to have the chef cook for your table. The menu also features items designed for the table to share. Michael Mina was named Restaurant of the Year 2011 by Esquire Magazine.

 Michael Mina’s exterior is simple and understated providing a great backdrop for the culinary delights created inside.


 The dining room at Michael Mina have a contemporary, monochromatic flair.


We selected the “Chef’s 9-Course ‘Ketto’ Menu” where for each course, they will present two different dishes. Since we shared our dishes, we got to try twice as many as the regular tasting menu. As the dinner progressed it only got better, especially when paired with the appropriate wines. Check out our menu here.
