The Commonwealth: tantalizing for both eyes + mouth

Looking for an exciting experience for both your palate and your eyes? Check out Commonwealth in San Francisco. It’s delicious, well done, the service is top notch, and it’s classy.

The chef’s tasting menu is priced well and worth it: at $75 per person for six courses. They allow you to substitute any of the courses {typically} for something off the al la cart menu too.

Each course was beautifully presented and tasted equally as amazing as it looked. I wanted to have a beer with the meal but it’s not always easy to find one beer that will or can carry you through your entire meal. This one, the Almanac Golden Gate Gose did. It was pure bliss. Nice and light for the seafood and with enough body to pair nicely with goat cheese and even the pork. Great beer AND local.

My favs: 

Dungeness crab crepe. Brilliant.

Lobster and mushroom {Cioppino like} soup

Asian pear salad with mixed bitter greens and soft goat cheese

Celery sorbet {weird but oddly delightful}

I highly recommend this for a nice date night. It’s right on Mission so easy to get to and easy to get a taxi from too.
