You haven’t experienced fine dining until you’ve been to Gary Danko- which was also why I was a little hesitant to whip out my iPhone camera at such a fancy restaurant.
Oh wells. #imAsian
How the menu works:
At Gary Danko, you have the option of ordering the 5-course tasting menu (chef’s selection) or can “create” your own meal for the night.
Here’s how it works.
You can choose from a 3, 4, or 5 course meal, ranging from appetizers, seafood, poultry, meat, cheese and desserts.
There is no wrong formula for selecting your courses at Gary Danko, and the cool thing about this restaurant is they are totally flexible. So if you wanted a flight of meat entrees or a sampling of desserts instead of appetizers, all you need to do is ask.
There is not a specific dish I want to write about, but I am a devoted fan of the lobster risotto. I’ve had it every time and each time seems to be better than the last.
A friend of mine jokingly suggested I close my eyes & randomly choose 5 different items. After eating here several times, I can actually attest to this joke.
One of the best restaurants in SF:
There is only one word that comes to mind when describing my experience here: perfection. And Zagat surveyors agree with me- dominating the competition in Zagat’s 2014 annual restaurant survey, Gary Danko ranked at the top in all major categories of Top Food, Top Service and Most Popular (4 years in a row). From the moment I was greeted through the door, to the fully attentive service, to the last bite of dessert- my entire night was flawless.
Oh and don’t forget to make your reservations well in advance –> they are fully booked 1-3 months out.
