7 Things to ❤️ at Robin

I haven’t had a favorite San Francisco sushi place in a very long time so am thrilled that Robin has arrived. Well, actually, the restaurant opened last year but we only just tried it last week. I think Rachel Levin, at Eater San Francisco, said it best “It’s the kind of sushi experience San Francisco has long lacked: one that’s neither austere nor Ace Wasabi.” Agreed. We’ll be back. In the meantime, here are some things I love.

1. Omakase
I love the culinary surprises that come from a menu carefully curated by the chef (Adam Tortosa) and his team.

Don’t spend too much time staring at this masterpiece, eat it before the snow melts (it really does). It’s divine.

robin-sf-72-clocks-daiginjo-sake3. Sake
They know their sake. We asked for a well-balanced floral-based recommendation and our server brought Nakao 72 Clocks Daiginjo. Nailed it.

robin-sf-caviar-potato-chip4. Old School
Caviar on a fried potato chip. Done.

robin-sf-uni-caviar5. Uni-Sea Urchin
If you’re in uni fan, like my better half, get it here. You won’t be disappointed.

robin-sf-candied-ginger-soft-serve6. Soft Serve
Who knew candied ginger soft serve could be this good?

7. Size
I always steer clear of large sushi restaurants. This one is a super-cozy size that manages to feel open with the help of a wall of glass facing Gough Street. I think there were about a dozen tables as well as a sushi bar for about 10-12 guests.

You should know that Robin charges $79 (and up) per person for about 15 pieces. Cost is on a sliding scale, and our server did check with us first on a desired budget before creating our experience.
