Benu San Francisco

Benu - review by Nicole Allmann

Style: 2 Michelin Star American Fusion Cuisine

Address: 22 Hawthorne Street , San Francisco , California
Area: SoMa

Phone: +1415 685 4860

Price: USD $28-42 main course; $180 17 course tasting menu; $110 wine pairing

The fairly new gastronomic establishment Benu in Soma has already been making tidal waves in the restaurant scene mostly because of fantastic fusion of American classics with Asian flavours created by the very talented chef – Cory Lee. Go for the chef’s tasting menu to treat your palates through a wonderful 17 course gastronomic journey. A la carte offerings are also available on Tuesdays thru Thursdays. The extensive wine list takes up 12 pages so there will surely be one or two that would please each guest.


Benu has taken on a minimalist look with light colours and a skylight that lets natural sunlight shine through; with several contemporary sketches adorning the cream coloured walls. Make sure to book a table at least two months ahead. Opt for the chef’s table if you want to see the labour of love behind the food creations. Benu is open for dinner from Tues-Sat, 5:30-10 PM.

    Awesome. Nothing I can say that hasn't been said before in many other reviews. Food, service, drinks. All top notch. Only thing I'd recommend is to have the bartender make a custom cocktail for you. I can't remember what it was they made but they know their stuff and I'm sure they won't disappoint.
