For the reluctant adventurer that is a little curious but does not want to sacrifice polish, consider The Slanted Door. The Slanted Door has found a way to make their food exotic, yet still approachable. Even their drinks are edgy and also refined.
Another star for The Slanted Door is its location. It’s just across the Embarcadero in the Ferry Building, which is perfect, because meetings at One Market Center often run late.
The Bay Bridge view from most tables is panoramic, and their cuisine, like the Dungeness crab with cellophane noodles, wins awards year after year. The Slanted Door is a mainstay for nearby executives that crave a sprinkle of the unknown served on a wooden tabletop.
