The Big 4 Restaurant

The Big 4 Restaurant has since the ’20s withstood numerous culinary trends and countless fashion assaults and is still one of the most esteemed historic American restaurants in San Francisco. Standing firm with its shining brass, polished mahogany, and leather banquettes, the atmosphere is early 20th-century gentleman’s club. The room is adorned with historic photographs of California, while the kitchen is known for its wild-game specialties: venison and black bean chili with onion crisps, or organic ostrich steak. If exotic meats aren’t your game, there’s also a menu of California-inspired fare. For something hearty, order another house specialty: the chicken pot pie. On a foggy day, claim a seat next to the fireplace to sip your Scotch on the rocks before dinner.
