Mosu is a restaurant that just opened in San Francisco. I got word of it from a newsletter I get. The pedigree of the chef (including time at The French Landry and Benu), and the proposed tasting menu of Asian-inspired dishes caught my interest. They are located on Fillmore St. very near the intersection with Geary. Reservations are made via the Resy.com website. The restaurant is not well-marked on the outside.
The restaurant only seats 18 people total. Downstairs, there was a table for 4 and two two-tops. The rest of the seating was upstairs on a loft level (curtained and walled off).
Upon arrival, they offered a glass of Champagne, which was very good. The tasting menu was already on the table, as was the wine list. I liked their wine selections as they had two Meursaults on it. Unfortunately, they were by the bottle, so I had to “settle” for the French white Burgundy by the glass.
The first snack was grilled burdock bark, served with house-cultured butter, fermented kombu, and lightly pickled sancho (pepper) berries stuck on the underside. The bark was like a cracker and sweet.
