Saison is an excellent restaurant. It is certainly one of the best in America and is the best in San Francisco. I will contend that, one ate three macaroon level food at the French Laundry between 1993-2000 when Thomas Keller was at the helm. Today, neither the French Laundry nor Meadowood, both three macaroons in Michelin, deliver at the level of Saison. (The only comparable quality in the Bay Area can be had at the David Kinch’s restaurant in Los Gatos, Manresa.) Certainly the fact that the founders of Twitter are among the financiers behind the venture helps the chef Joshua Skenes to select the very best and rare ingredients. He charges the highest price of any restaurant in the Bay Area for the quality and luxurious rarity, but this is the United States and true luxury here has a higher price than in Spain, Italy, and even France.
