Top Tastes

Amuse Bouche trio w/ truly sublime Uni Flan

It’s ever a joy to return to two of my all-time favorite SF restaurants (one for fine dining/special occasions), the other, my top Italian for offal, meat and wines.

I’ve visited Incanto many times over the years, falling in love instantly with Chris Cosentino’s bold cooking, his gift for making innards palatable, and a deft hand with meats, seafood and pastas.

Michael Mina has remained one of the few special occasion destinations where I never leave disappointed, always thrilled by the balance of flavor and inventiveness… here’s hoping we won’t lose Mina’s brilliant trios when he moves the restaurant to the former Aqua space.

Now, my walk through these two greats via photos from recent dinners:
