A few weekends ago I had the extreme pleasure of finally making my way to Fleur De Lys in San Francisco. It was a truly incredible experience and I would absolutely recommend a visit. From the valet to the farewell, every second of our evening was planned out and executed perfectly. It was one of the most amazing meals I’ve ever eaten and I just can’t put into words what a fantastic time I had. Here are a few shots from the evening…
The interior design was equally as impressive as the food. I felt like I was in another time while eating dinner. I am sorry for the dark pictures, all I had was my iPhone and didn’t wait to disrupt the other diners with my flash!

* HK is known for his vegetarian options, so don’t worry about that being a factor! They also put together a fantastic gluten free menu as well.
* Menu is prix fixe (very smart) we did the 3 course and left feeling absolutely stuffed!! With the 4 and 5 course selections, the plates get smaller so you aren’t overloaded and can enjoy your dessert.
We were also greeted with an amuse bouche (chilled soup and a carrot salad), black olive bread, and a delightful glass of bordeaux. Our three course meal turned into almost 6 with the surprise dessert tray at the end! I really couldn’t have asked for a better evening. Thank you Hubert Keller… next stop, Burger Bar Las Vegas!
