San Francisco Top 25 Restaurants: August 2015

The eponymous Restaurant Gary Danko makes its way to the No. 1 spot for the first time this month, with a Social Score of 187.83, one of the highest scores we’ve seen in Foodable Top 25 history thus far, topped only by barMASA and Sinatra, both in Las Vegas.

Restaurant Gary Danko, helmed by the James Beard Award winning chef of the same namesake, has been serving up “sophisticated contemporary cuisine” for nearly 17 years in the Wharf area with a nod to New American dishes with an emphasis on California cuisine. Guests can order from a traditional menu or choose to go the tasting menu route, which includes 5 courses for $117 or with a wine pairing experience for $85.

State Bird Provisions, flour + water and b. patisserie all fall down one spot to No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, with a big mover coming in at No. 5: The Slanted Door, which jumped from No. 15. Other big movers this month, for better or worse, include Epic Roasthouse and Coi, with Salt House resurfacing on the list for the first time since back in November 2014.
