Hg2 : The Hedonist


AsiaSF, serving legendary fusion Asian food in the Clift, combines the unlikely partners of drag queens and Asian fusion cuisine to create one of the most original restaurants in San Francisco. While the real draw here is the “show,” so to speak, you’ll also find a menu with the likes of blackened tuna sashimi and truffled soba noodles. California-Asian cuisine, a sublevel dance floor, Asian fantasy décor, and a crew of “gender illusionists” doubling as servers combine for a night’s experience you won’t soon forget. The dining room features bamboo-clad walls, shoji screens, paper lanterns, and a Chinese-red central runway where the gorgeous talent kicks out show tunes. Tourists and groups of locals celebrating special occasions populate many of the tables. This is a good place to take a date, but not a good place to find one. After 11pm, the spacious downstairs club plays hip-hop and house, and hosts regular parties such as Love Underground, an erotically charged gathering that takes place every fourth Friday.”
