Venue Info

Even though it's tucked between two unassuming buildings in The Mission and nestled close to the freeway, you’d still be surprised at how serene an oasis Izakaya Rintaro is. Reminiscent of a treehouse, the 60-seat space serves gorgeously prepared izakaya from a Chez Panisse alum. Warm your palate by sipping on a light cocktail made with ume plum liqueur, and then dig into fresh-from-the-waters sashimi, skewers of juicy chicken, hand-rolled udon in fish broth, and light-as-air tamago (layers of thin egg that you can watch your chef preparing from the open kitchen).
