The Slanted Door - San Francisco

We put our hotel concierge to work to seat us at The Slanted Door, the hot table in town. This Vietnamese restaurant used to be a hole in the wall in the attractively seedy Mission district, but once Bill Clinton & Mick Jagger dined there, it became clear that a more upscale location would be necessary; it now occupies a corner of the newly-remodelled Ferry Building, a nice small collection of California food shops.

Our cocktails were by far the best we’d had all trip, but the food didn’t live up to expectations. Very good sashimi, and nice mouthfuls of noodles and dumplings, but did we miss something?

The emperor's new food?
