So much has already been written, that it looks like there’s not much more for me to say. What I WILL say, quite simply, is that I entirely concur with the numerous positive reviews out there. I’m thrilled to have been turned on this week to a unique and impressive dining destination of which until now I was unaware. Everyone else in San Francisco seems to know it, but perhaps I can use the excuse of still being relatively new to town. Or maybe not. In any event, now I know Bix.
“This retro-modern supper club, now 21 years old, has a speakeasy vibe. It’s located on a narrow street in the shadows of the Transamerica Pyramid, and you almost feel like you need a secret password to get through the darkened entryway. However, the impressive Deco-inspired interior opens up to reveal a grand space that includes a mezzanine supported by ornate columns. Bartenders expertly mix classic drinks, and chef Bruce Hill gives modern twists to some familiar dishes. There’s also live jazz nightly.” (Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants)
Don’t be too alarmed by the deceivingly small gin glasses; I quickly got past them, especially after spotting my always favorite and rarely found steak tartare on the menu! I can’t wait to go back and have it, no doubt dressed in smart evening attire to complement Bix’ grand and elegant atmosphere. The booths are quite roomy, so you just might have to join me.
