This ‘casual’ Saison spinoff from Chef Joshua Skenes has received a ton of media attention since it opened in late 2018. The good news is that in terms of space, service and food, Angler lives up to the hype. Though the name inspires visions of fishing, the self-proclaimed ‘sea life-focused’ restaurant also excels in the areas of hunting, ranching and gathering. Almost all of the hot dishes are cooked over a 32-foot hearth and open wood-fire grill (the whole chicken is perfection). However, be sure to also order some of the raw dishes, like the antelope tartare, the oysters, and if you’re in the mood to splurge, the caviar service. Saison has two dining rooms, and both have sweeping views of the Bay Bridge; opt for the main dining room if you want an airy, spacious feel and the Game Room if you want a more intimate experience and don’t mind taxidermy animals as decor. Yes, Angler is more casual than its fancy sister restaurant, but the quality of the ingredients, cooking techniques, and atmosphere are still very upscale and the prices reflect that.
