Considered by many to be the best Vietnamese restaurant in America, the Slanted Door has become one of the most well-known must-tries when visiting the City by the Bay. The draw? Gorgeously fresh and refined interpretations of Southeast Asian classics made from local, organic ingredients and served in a bright and bustling contemporary space in the Ferry Building, overlooking the bay and twinkling Bay Bridge. Don’t miss the grass-fed estancia shaking beef, crab with glass noodles, crispy imperial rolls, or pho—all conceived of by self-taught chef/owner Charles Phan, a long-beloved darling of San Francisco’s fickle restaurant scene. Celebrity fans including Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Quentin Tarantino, Luke Wilson, and Gwyneth Paltrow have been known to sneak in for a bite.
