On our first night of our honeymoon in San Francisco Erin and I headed to AME Restaurant for dinner. Located at the St. Regis San Francisco this started our dining experience off on the right foot. We found AME Restaurant via opentable.com under the Michelin Star winning restaurants. It won a star in both 2008 and 2009. Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani have put together great New American style food with what I found to be a Japanese influence. In addition to the standard dining menu, AME boasts a great sashimi menu.
Next up was a fish course. We were treated to a “Broiled Sake Marinated Alaskan Black Cod in Shiso Broth.”
This was my favorite dish of the night. The cod was amazing; however I did find the broth to be too salty after the cod was finished to eat alone.
For dessert we were treated to two different dishes. First Erin enjoyed a “Summer Fruit Shortcake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Almond Brittle”
I enjoyed a “Warm Rhubarb Pie with Orange Flower Ice Cream”
The decor in the restaurant was very clean and modern. It’s elegance was a perfect fit for the St. Regis and Erin and I both enjoyed the vibe. It was a little loud for such a small restaurant, but that fit the look and feel. The wait staff was good and made us feel right at home. As you’ll note in a couple of the pictures, they learned through conversation that it was our honeymoon and decorated the desserts accordingly. The wine pairings were very good, but nothing that wow’d us.
Here is a picture album with pictures of Erin and I at AME. At the end of the night we had to be a bit over dramatic as we left the restaurant slightly buzzed and extremely full.
