Fodor's Expert Review Nightbird

$$$$ Hayes Valley Modern American Fodor's Choice
Chef-owner Kim Alter's solo debut is this small, charming, seasonally focused tasting-menu destination that is an oasis of calm away from the frantic traffic of Gough Street. The five-course and five-bite menus (think of it like a 10-course tasting menu) are always beautifully orchestrated, served by a staff that seems to always anticipate the next question or request, making this one of the more relaxed and (relatively) affordable splurges of San Francisco's gastronomic elite restaurants.
