Slanted Door

Slanted Door, a modern Vietmanese gem, is one of the premier hot restaurants in San Francisco, so if you want to dine here, reserve as soon as you can. Friday and Saturday nights see a seemingly endless stream of stylish locals gathered at the bar and clustered around tables crammed with a tantalizing medley of small plates late into the evening. The reason is mostly the food, which is good enough to become an addiction, though the friendly scene has something to do with it as well. Don’t miss the spring rolls and the lemongrass tofu with fresh shiitake mushrooms, onions, and chili sauce. Slanted Door serves delicious modern Vietnamese cuisine in an equally modernist setting, to be consumed elbow to elbow with other well-groomed, festive, fashionably modern people. Its location, perched on the bay, affords beautiful natural light and a pretty view. Everybody loves Slanted Door. Despite a heavy flow of tourists, the place manages to sustain a thoroughly chic vibe. Especially mid-week, you’ll find creative professionals taking up every seat at the bar. Reserve early. Can’t get in for lunch? Out the Door, the restaurant’s adjacent take-out window, serves an abbreviated menu of equally delicious fare.
