Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak Moves Into The Westin St. Francis
Even for a celeb chef, Michael Mina is a busy man. He has restaurants in seven states, with the latest--his 18th--opening at The Westin St. Francis just over a week ago.
The new restaurant--which replaces Mina's eponymous resto in the same space (it has a new location elsewhere)--is Bourbon Steak, which his fans may already know from Scottsdale, Miami, Washington D.C. and Detroit.
But the James Beard-winning chef promises to give this Bourbon Steak a Californian flavor, with a menu heavy on local product and farmers. (Omri Alfalo, executive chef, is the man who'll actually be running the show in the kitchen.)
Hmm, root beer float!
Steak is the star here, of course, and Mina's signature butter-poached steaks can be ordered in a variety of sizes and grades. But there's also a San Francisco cioppino on the menu and--words that always stop us in our tracks--lobster corn dogs.
The SF edition of Grub Street has the full menu here.
Rooms at The Westin St. Francis start at $255.55 a night this weekend.
