Rich Table - Hayes Valley

Sometimes there are those nights when
you go to a restaurant with quite high expectations but you go home after the visit and you are even more impressed than you expected - that describes our first visit to Rich Table https://www.richtablesf.com/ in Hayes Valley.
Rich Table isn’t an unknown restaurant in SF (and beyond) and has “produced” some well known chefs, like Brandon Rice from Ernest but for us the overall “package” was a great fit - ambience (lively, yet relaxed), food (New American/Californian - just order the “let the chef decide” menu which will give you a great overview of many of the dishes on the menu and is a lot of great food), service (professional, yet personal - we for example asked for slow-paced night and they handled it really great) to the cocktail program (creative, well balanced drinks)
