Benu: The Ink Isn't Even Dry Yet on the Menu

The most anticipated restaurant opening of the year: Benu opened Aug. 10th, well before its target date of Aug 22nd. The restaurant is already booked solid for the next 8 weeks, says Open Table. So you if you're not lucky enough to score a reservation, mid-October might be your best bet, which may not be a bad thing, as by then any needed tweaks would've been done.

Not that ex-French-Laundry-Chef-de-Cuisine, Corey Lee, is prone to glitches. It's been well-documented by the food press that he's a pretty exacting dude.

I'm excited to see how this new fine dining space would fly in the face of food trucks and the dozens of casual eateries that have sprouted in the Mission and elsewhere in the Bay Area since the Great Recession started.

Anyway, wish me luck I'll try to get in asap. Meanwhile here's the a la carte menu and the tasting menu.

22 Hawthorne Street
San Francisco CA 94105
Open for dinner Tues-Sat 5:30pm-10:00pm
415.685.4860 (call 10am-4pm Tues-Sat)
