It’s All About the Food and the View at CHAYA Brasserie
Situated on prime real estate on San Francisco’s Embarcadero, CHAYA Brasserie is a great place to go for a relaxing and delicious meal. And when it’s Wine and Dine Sunday, you’re in for a good deal as well. A three-course tasting menu is only $35, and all bottles of wine are half off.
CHAYA Brasserie combines French flair with Japanese sensibilities and California specialties. Enjoy sweeping views from the Ferry Building to the Bay Bridge. Choose the energetic bar and main dining area for dinner, or the quieter room that also has the sushi bar.
The three-course tasting menu changes weekly for each Wine and Dine Sunday. When you call for reservations, ask about the entrée, because unfortunately, there are no substitutions, if for example, you don’t eat meat.
On recent Sundays, here are some of the delectable offerings:
Appetizer: Roasted Monterey squid, black risotto, wild Arugula.
Entrée: Pan-roasted day boat scallops wrapped with local petrale sole served with potato purée, heirloom zucchini, crispy shallots and lobster fondue.
Dessert: Chocolate profiteroles with vanilla ice cream, fig, and bourbon pepper sauce.
Appetizer: Organic sweet gem lettuce salad with plout, croutons and green goddess dressing.
Entrée: Oakwood grilled flat iron steak and white corn, white shimeji mushrooms, fava beans, roasted figs, mashed potatoes, and horseradish beef jus.
Dessert: Chilled yellow watermelon and lemon cucumber soup, pomegranate gelée, concord grapes, peach, cucumber-mint sorbet. The food at CHAYA Brasserie is creative, fresh, and definitely a steal on Wine and Dine Sundays. And you can’t beat half price for a bottle of wine. It’s the perfect place to kick back and enjoy a Sunday evening.
