San Francisco Quince Restaurant Kitchen Tour

San Francisco Quince Restaurant

Behind the scenes Kitchen Tour

I feel fortunate to have joined Quince during their renovation at their amazing Quince Curate Pop Up. The pop up was located just across the street from Quince at Hedge Gallery.  During this event I experienced Quince dining for the first time and decided I would have to return when they reopened.

Well, I haven’t had a special enough occasion for a dinner at Quince. Let’s be honest, it’s¬†not like grabbing a burger at your local bar. It’s a very special, luxurious meal that also comes with a very special price tag. So, when I planned to dine at their sister restaurant Cotogna I thought what a perfect excuse to swing by¬†Quince. I was anxious to see the new kitchen¬†I’d heard so much about. These days I get more excitement seeing the kitchen and the chefs behind the scenes at work than enjoying being a guest in the dining room. ¬†I guess it’s the¬†foodie¬†in me. I’m always curious to see what’s going on behind the scenes and to see¬†the amazing chefs at work in their natural habitat. ¬†In this case, the Kitchen tour was just that. We saw the chef’s precision and patience with each dish they cooked and then plated. They used a delicate touch, paying exquisite detail to each and every dish. It really was a¬†work of art to watch!!¬†470 Pacific Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133.¬†(415) 775-8500.¬†
