Celebrating with my boyfriend, looking for a supper club style restaurant in SF. Hopefully a fixed menu with impeccable wine pairings. Definitely considering Saison but would like to explore some other options before making a decision. What can you recommend? Thank you in advance!

  1. Reading "supper club" in Wikipedia, there appear to be three distinct strains of "supperclub" (Wisconsin, UK, and Latin America; who knew), and I don't think Saison fits into any of those descriptions. There's an actual branch of Supperclub (the brand)... so what the heck are you talkin' about? Are you looking for a nice full-evening tasting menu place? That's, like, Benu, Luce, COI, Saison (extended), TDRATRC, Commis.

      Thanks, BBulkow - I was going to ask the OP the same question. I wasn't sure what they wanted in asking for a supper club!

        Supper clubs are popping up all over the US. They are invitation only, fixed menus...varying in style depending on the club.

        Now there are restaurants that are taking that idea public - I think of Saison, Supperclub, etc to be along this vein.

        But to answer your question, yes, I am looking for a nice, full-evening tasting menu.

          We call those "underground" restaurants here. By their nature, you can't usually find out about them in a public forum like this. There are "pop-up" places that work out of licensed kitchens and are open to the public, e.g. Radio Africa (which is turning into a normal restaurant in a few months).

          Saison is a very ambitious restaurant. It started out being open only three nights a week, but had nothing to do with the underground restaurant scene.

          Supperclub is a nightclub where according to most accounts the food is something of an afterthought.
