There aren’t many better-looking dining restaurants in San Francisco than the vivacious fine dining restaurant One Market. Its huge windows and high ceilings give it the grand feel of an event hall, but the white table cloths and candlelight cozy it up. The clock tower of the Ferry Building just outside lends an archetypal backdrop to the dining experience. The sturdy fare that has made One Market famous is reliable and well-executed. The menu changes often to remain seasonal, but meat and fish dishes are the speciality; the roast pork shoulder atop a bed of farro is out of this world. For a dining experience you won’t forget, come in a group and request the chef’s table inside the kitchen. Tall, arched windows open up the dining room to the view of the palm-lined Embarcadero waterfront. Expect the tables to be packed with Financial District types enjoying a long lunch. To avoid the distraction of scenery and the bustle of the open kitchen, ask for a table in the raised seating area.
