Best New Restaurant for Feeling at Home 

Liholiho Yacht Club

871 Sutter St., 415-440-5446
Chef/owner Ravi Kapur’s pop-up-to-permanent-success story Liholiho Yacht Club transports you into a Hawaiian potluck where everyone has brought his or her best dishes. The menu is eclectic but harmonious and only tangentially Hawaiian, so don’t expect spam musubi or loco moco, but you will find tuna poke and a fantastic take on Baked Alaska called Baked Hawaii. Sometimes the combination of dishes might not seem to make sense on paper, but once they arrive and you feel the potluck vibe, they all come together beautifully. Liholiho has propagated a social media hashtag called #getjag that encourages its own twist on a homey, party vibe that you’ll feel immediately upon walking in the door.
