Restaurateurs Chad Bourdon and Matthew Dolan have opened a multi-level restaurant and lounge in San Francisco’s SOMA district. Twenty Five Lusk serves up New American cuisine in a rehabbed meat packing warehouse originally constructed in 1917. The old timber, vintage bricks and exposed duct work are as much a part of the design as the contemporary furnishings within. Twenty Five Lusk is carefully lit to provide a warm, open environment that is more about socializing than it is about intimacy. That said, groups of diners can treat themselves to Matthew Dolan’s chef’s table for a menu selected by the chef himself, granting a new and spontaneous culinary experience. The ambiance of this interior is deeply inviting, but the early reviews on the food are even more positive. If you call the San Francisco Bay home, give this one a shot and let us know what you think.
