Rich Table has made a name for itself in San Francisco in a relatively short time. It can be hard to secure a reservation. A lot of folks show up early for a seat at the bar to dine. The first time I went there a year or so ago, that was how I had a chance to try their food. They have since garnered a Michelin Bib designation. And a recent review by a local food critic talked about a tasting menu experience, which I did not recall them having before. So, I managed to secure an early dinner reservation one recent Friday evening.
In addition to the bar seating, there are several small tables and a large community table. Reservations can be made via Opentable.com.
Their drinks menu offers a wide variety of beverage choices. I went with a glass of the 2011 French Chardonnay.
The food menu focuses on local ingredients and innovative combinations and presentations, which are what attracted me to the restaurant. I didn’t know exactly what would be covered by the tasting menu. I was hoping that at least some of the items would be taken from the standard menu, which is how it turned out.
