The food and wine at Menton, Chef Barbara Lynch's prix fix fine dining restaurant in Fort Point Channel,  is one of the most expensive meals in the city, and it is exquisite. I went during their "unofficial" restaurant week (back in August) which made this splurge worthy destination, affordable. (Though still expensive!) Chef de Cuisine and Top Chef Season 10 winner Kristen Kish puts out first rate dishes with a stunning presentation and flavor profiles beyond expectation.

corn madeleines topped with caviar | caramelized onion and goat cheese macarons
glass of bubbly |  croissants with a touch of honey
onsen egg 
dèlice de bourgogne cappellacci | radish and apricot broth
chocolate parfait | coffee, banana, popcorn
miniature macarons | basil, corn, earl grey, and berry
petit fours | caramels, cookie dough truffles, mini cakes with dollops of jam

Menton on Urbanspoon


  1. I have been twice and meals were fantastic. I was so surprised by how much extra comes out to the table that you never order. So much fun and worth the splurge for a special evening!

  2. I agree with Megan! I hope we can go next time Restaurant Week rolls around!

  3. Spare none for the delicious details, color & palate of the tongue!

  4. I wanna go back to Menton just for the mini macaroons. Okay, for the rest of the food, too, but definitely the desserts and the teeny tiny macaroons :)

  5. I've been wanting to go but nervous to even look at the menu/pricing haha. good idea to try during restaurant week!
