For over 25 years and continuing in the tradition of legendary founder Masataki Kobayashi, Masa’s Restaurant in San Francisco has made its reputation with a succession of world-renowned chefs that have deftly walked the line between culinary adventure and classicism.
Chef Short and Master Sommelier Alan Murray delight in presenting nightly four- and seven-course tasting menus highlighting the best of the season and region, the restaurant’s 800-strong wine list, and otherworldly cocktails at the exclusive bar.
Designed by Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, Masa’s restaurant dining room is a gracious and elegant triumph of modern simplicity and warmth. Entering into a calming foyer and bar of creamy sandstone, guests are welcomed into an intimate space filled with white, toile d'Juoy fabric-covered chairs and tables topped with Masa’s signature vases of roses. Cranberry-hued, silk lampshades suspended from above offer a warm glow. In the center of the room is the fanciful, hammered-bronze sculpture commissioned from artist Albert Guibara called “Les Muses de La Cuisine” depicting dancing figures holding artichokes, asparagus and grapes.
