Benu * * * San Francisco

Everything about the establishment is minimal and great attention to detail was spent so that the dinners give their undivided attention to the food – which makes each dish more intense.  The walls, table, table setting, lighting are all solid dark / natural and mute colors.

The menu is on the left. You get to keep the menu and the orange round magnet with a “b” logo.  IMG_4779.JPG

The meal starts. IMG_4780.JPG

Asian flavors start strong… never thought I would have kimchee in a three start restaurant. IMG_4781.JPG

There is a nice court yard garden, before you enter the restaurant. It was a unique meal and I look forward to the next time I get to go.
