Saison's Salon Menu
By: Marcia Gagliardi
If you want to step your toes into Saison without ponying up for the full tasting menu (for $298), you can experience the more approachable Salon menu instead. The à la carte menu features dishes like Monterey Bay abalone, stew of rice and abalone liver, coastal greens, and artichoke ($20), and wood pigeon roasted over cherrywood embers, cherry leaf, dried cherry, and cherry blossom ($38). The menu changes daily, and you also have access to sommelier Mark Bright’s 5,000-bottle wine list, plus the new cocktails served in handblown Japanese glassware. Since there’s only room for 14, reservations are highly recommended.
178 Townsend St. at 3rd St., 415-828-7990.
