Utilizing San Francisco’s farmer’s markets for seasonal inspiration and Fifth Floor’s rooftop garden to source fresh herbs, Chef Bazirgan carefully crafts his menus, which change daily. In addition to a full dinner menu, a six-course tasting and lounge menu are also available.

Reservations for the restaurant are highly recommended and can be made up to two months in advance.
