Earlier this week, I had an excellent dinner at Swell in San Francisco. It's a really small place, but it had nice ambience, and more importantly, I thought the food was really good. I don't think we would have found this place on our own... we ended up there as Open Table had spotlighted the restaurant. For $25, we obtained a $50 credit, which definitely made the meal seem really inexpensive.
The food was great in my opinion. I'm too lazy to write more about it, but everything we had was really good. I have to say that I wasn't particularly fond of the ginger flavored crème brulée, though I thought the miso flavored and espresso flavored versions were quite good. Anyway, it's a seafood restaurant, and I believe it is worth checking out. It is unlikely to disappoint in my opinion.
Here are some pics from our meal... about half the menu was raw and the other half was cooked. We basically followed that ratio, and ordered two raw dishes and two cooked dishes. This was followed up with a set of three differently flavored crème brulée servings.
