With his dedication to foraging, introspective menus, and uber-seasonal cuisine, Chef Daniel Patterson;s name has become synonymous with modern California cuisine. His celebrated restaurant Coi may be steps away from the bright lights of North Beach strip clubs, but duck inside the restaurant and you’re entering a tranquil temple of earth tones, cross-section wood furniture, and minimalistic Japanese-inspired décor. It’s an experience not to be forgotten; Patterson’s cerebral, patiently composed food is hyper-thoughtful and evocative. With Matt Tinder in charge of the pastry programs at Patterson’s three restaurants' (Coi, Haven, and Plum), you’ll find hearth-baked breads, handcrafted products like fresh tofu and cultured butters, and whimsical yet refined desserts that seamlessly meld savory and sweet.
