Gary Danko

The very best restaurant in San Francisco might well be Gary Danko, in the vicinity of Fisherman's Wharf. Featured is a tasting men, a fusion of American, French and Mediterranean cuisine.  Prices were reasonable.  Service was fabulous.

I had a combination of seared foie gras, horseradish crusted salmon and lemon pepper duck breast.  The FG was fantastic, salmon too vinegary and duck lacking in character and definitely mediocre.  I started with a Kir Royale, followed by a Cain Concept, essentially a California bourdeaux.  We also shared artisinal cheese, in my case with a Lagavulan and expresso.  The discussion was stimulating and maybe even provocative.  Below, Leighton Chong, Milton (CTO in e-Commerce) and Jayne (dramaturg) Diaz Perez and...me.
