The Mission

On a downscale urban block in the hip, multiethnic Mission District, virtuoso chef Jason Fox harmonizes a dizzying array of international ingredients.

Critical Acclaim

In 2011, Commonwealth was a Semi-Finalist for the James Beard Foundation's "Best New Restaurant" Award. Gayot named Commonwealth one of the "Top 10 New Restaurants in the U.S. - 2011".

Pro Tip

Commonwealth has a private parking lot, which is good news in the Mission on any night.

What to Order

"The wines were extremely impressive! If you're looking for a white wine, try the Picpoul De Pinet -- it was perfectly balanced."

Rishi Mandal

Standouts include sea urchin with sweet potato tempura, chrysanthemum leaf, shiso, scallion, and yuzu kosho; and squid and pork belly with jidori egg salad, potato croutons, and herb vinaigrette.

Fox is serving envelope-pushing dishes, at times bewildering, that fit a restaurant as forward-thinking as Commonwealth. Case in point: a portion of proceeds from each tasting menu sold are given to a local charity, with the recipient changing monthly.

What lands at the table could have come from the playbook of the four-star Manresa or Coi. Chef Jason Fox clearly has his own vision, aided by Ian Muntzert. They're part of a new generation of chefs brightening the dining scene by creating innovative food that a decade ago would only be served in plush, white-tablecloth surroundings, with prices to match.
