RN74 (San Francisco, CA)

So excited to be back at RN74 in San Francisco! I came here for happy hour a couple of years ago and have been looking forward to returning for a proper dinner. The name of the restaurant is short for “Route Nationale 74”, which is the main highway running through the Burgundy wine region of France. How appropriate, considering that they feature an extensive wine list that highlights beautiful wines from Burgundy. My lovely dining companion gave me full control over ordering (she’s the best), so I went to town. We feasted on pastrami-style Scottish salmon tartare (my favorite salmon tartare ever!), moules frites (I could happily drown in the white wine broth), clam & garlic risotto with sea urchin (elegant and delicious), chestnut agnolotti with grilled quail (perfectly cooked), crispy brussels sprouts (BEST EVER!!!), and the RN74 cassoulet (warm and cozy). We were beyond stuffed by the time the last dish came out and had to pack some of the leftovers to go. Everything was wonderful! We washed it all down with a gorgeous bottle of Kutch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir — love love love this wine. I never go wrong when dining at a Chef Michael Mina restaurant!
