Ame, The St. Regis San Francisco’s lobby-level restaurant, is led by executive chef Orlando Pagan, an alum of renowned chef Gary Danko. Pagan blends Southern French, Japanese, American and Northern Italian tastes in his frequently changing menu at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s fusion restaurant, so while there may not be any signature dishes per se, we do have a few dinner recommendations.
One of your best bets is a broiled, sake-marinated Alaskan black cod served with shrimp dumplings, which consistently receives rave reviews along with the "Taste of Ame" sashimi bar (those selections can be ordered à la carte, too). For dessert, you’re more likely to find fruit confections rather than rich, chocolatey treats, or you can finish your meal with a plate of artisanal domestic cheeses.
