Welcome to Baker & Banker, a husband-and-wife eatery aiming to bring you comfort food like Mom used to make in the form of hearty dinner fare by night and fresh-baked goods all day.
Located in an old apothecary in the residential Pacific Heights neighborhood, Baker and Banker serves up a convivial ambiance for its fresh farm-to-table New American cuisine.
Baker & Banker sources its ingredients from local farms and the Chef's tasting menu showcases their seasonal offerings in five courses. $75 per person (+$35 for wine pairing).
Reserve the chef's table, which is located in the restaurant's bakery. It's a cool atmosphere and can seat 6-8 people.
"Order the bacon-infused doughnuts for dessert if they have them!"
Stop in for a craft brew at the bar, stay for a casual romantic dinner of grilled steak with cast-iron potatoes, and then return in the morning to the bakery below for a fresh loaf or a peanut butter caramel fudge brownie (we like our places to multitask).
Banker handles the savory courses while his wife does the desserts — she hopes to open a bakery with an entrance around the corner on Bush Street. He calls the food New American and incorporates influences from many cultures.
