If you haven’t been to this nearly 90 year-old steakhouse in a while, now’s the time to change that. The Daniel Patterson Group took ownership of the restaurant last year and gave it a slight refresh, but a basement fire in the spring gave him the chance to take that refresh to the next level. Everything looks the same (in other words: don’t wear red unless you want to disappear into the walls and leather booths), and the service is still friendly and impeccable, but there are new bar snacks, housemade pastas, and seasonal cocktails to try. Plus, the steaks and martinis remain some of the best you’ll find in SF.
