San Francisco

Avery brings elevated American food to the Fillmore

A modern American spot has debuted in the Fillmore. Called Avery, the newcomer is located at 1552 Fillmore St. (between O'Farrell St. and Geary Blvd.).

Although the restaurant has just opened, it's already considered a member of San Francisco's tasting menu elite, says The Chronicle. Inspired by the works of abstract painter Milton Avery, the spot features three all-inclusive prix fixe menus, with a focus on local ingredients paired with champagne and sake. 

Diners can expect offerings that include local sea urchin in a spicy lobster broth with grapefruit, Wagyu ribeye with Kansas City barbecue sauce, and jamon iberico on sunchoke cake with shaved black truffle. 

Avery has just two reviews on Yelp, earning a five-star rating thus far.

Andrew S., the first Yelper to review the spot on its second evening of service, said he "had a great dining experience. The food itself was definitely Michelin quality, and the ambience/decor is comparable to other fine-dining restaurants in SF."

Diner Jimmy K praised Avery's "attention to detail. Incredible service. Fantastic plating. But, most importantly: exquisite Michelin star-quality food at a very reasonable rate."

Avery is open Wednesday–Sunday from 5:30 p.m.–9:30 p.m.
