Best Restaurant: Haven

Best Restaurant

Haven is the Bay area’s most satisfying, sophisticated dining experience, wrapped up in a regionally appropriate casual bow. It’s aspirational, upping the game especially on the cocktail and whiskey front, as their noted director of spirits, Dean Hurst, takes us all to the dark side with 180-plus selections, with a mind-blowing selection of craft bourbon and single malts not just from Scotland, but from great distillers in India and Taiwan. Not to be outdone, wine director Gregory Mayer has assembled a 2,500-bottle cellar with 550 choices, more than 35 wines by the glass, and unique premium wine pours using the high-tech Coravin system.
