Faith & Flower | Downtown | California, Contemporary | Restaurant
Loading...
Faith & Flower, the downtown restaurant helmed by Michelin-starred chef Michael Hung, is set in an is opulent chandelier-adorned dining hall named for its location: Ninth and Flower streets (Flower apparently was called Faith Street back in the 1920s.) The menu boasts an eclectic array of flavors, from Korean chile-spiked deviled eggs to hand-rolled garganelli pasta with butternut and goat cheese to a mesquite-grilled, bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with country-ham gravy. No one style of cuisine or flavor really dominates - there's plenty of seafood, lots of different meats and a handful of vegetarian dishes - though the menu leans toward a hearty, gastropub style. As for drinks, the list is split between old-school classics from the early 1900s - think the Negroni and the 1908-vintage Montana Club, a mix of armagnac, sweet vermouth, Fernet-Branca and absinthe - and modern concoctions. like the Bradberry, which contains rye whiskey, ginger, lemon and a topping of tart strawberry lambic.
