Coi Review

Daniel Patterson, who has made a name for himself internationally both as a chef and as a pundit on contemporary restaurant trends, has created a destination restaurant, an enchanting spot on the gritty end of Broadway. There are two dining rooms: the front room, a bit more casual with rustic wood tables and banquettes with pillows, and the 30-seat formal dining room, with soft lighting, luxe linens, and gold-taupe banquettes along the two walls. On offer is an 11-course tasting menu ($165), full of the bounty of Bay Area produce and ingredients. The highly seasonal and obsessively sourced food (some of it is even foraged by chef Patterson) matches the space in sophistication, with such inspired dishes as Dungeness crab raviolo with sheep sorrel and butter crab broth; and aged duck breast with stuffed cabbage, roasted beets, horseradish, and dill. The kitchen is always tinkering and innovating, brining and curing, so the menu feels like a new and often exciting culinary experience.

    The best of the best. Daniel Patterson is an absolute artist and food just happens to be his medium. I have eaten here 4 times and each time the experience is unique but one thing remains constant -- perfection. Daniel is certainly at the top of the chef food chain but after eating here you will wonder why Daniel isn't the most famous of them all. Expensive but worth the money in the amazing food and the amazing experience.
