Roe Restaurant & Lounge
Once known for gauche gold lamé, leopard print, and the occasional celebrity sighting, Roe Restaurant and Lounge is now a addition to the list of truly chic restaurants in San Francisco, reinvigorated after a much-needed makeover in 2007. Dressed in an understated palette of graphite and pearl, the elegant new interior is a hip place to sample out-there global cuisine. The international dishes Roe serves are hit and miss: think yellowfin tuna wellington with couscous and grated daikon, and lollipop scallops with prosciutto and spicy tobiko aioli. Sip equally innovative cocktails in the swanky first-floor lounge, or head to the upstairs nightclub where trendy youngsters start to gather after 10pm.
