The tradition of the South. The sophistication of California cuisine. Vibrant, cosmopolitan energy. Picán is 'Southern...Unleashed!' Full service bar/lounge with hand-crafted cocktails, Southern "twists" and classic standards. The most comprehensive Bourbon portfolio in the Bay Area; a thoughtful selection of wines. An open kitchen serves as focal point in the casually elegant dining room. <br /><br />Unique Southern flavors: Signature Southern Fried Chicken, Catfish Nantua and VooDoo Shrimp & Grits. Seasonal produce and sustainably sourced meats and seafood. "Ultimate Southern Social Hour." Lunch Favorites: Flavorful salads, Southern Sammies including NOLA Brisket Burger! Brunch Favorites: Beignets, Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict and Bourbon Bloody Mary. <br /><br />Private, luxurious dining rooms: The Bourbon Room seating up to 28 and Vieux Carré seating 40. Named "Best Overall Oakland Restaurant 2012" by Oakland Magazine. <br />

"We have been to Pican many times before and we're disappointed in some of the first courses. The fried green tomatoes were a real disappointment compared to the previous preparation and the chickpea funnel cake was weird."

Chef Ken Tominaga brings forth a modern take on traditional Izakaya-style dining with PABU San Francisco. In partnership with Michael Mina this modern izakaya and sushi bar in downtown San Francisco is a dream brought to life for Tominaga and Mina. Located at the landmark 101 California space in San Francisco’s Financial District, PABU combines rustic, old-world Japanese charm with modern, urban sophistication to create a dynamic, social dining experience. Requests for the sushi bar cannot be guaranteed.

"A fabulous dining experience. While there are many course, each is small and light not to mention full of flavor. As good as anything else in the Bay Area."

"I didn't care for the steak tartare - too gelantinous - but everything else we ate was delicious. Our server was very accommodating and attentive."

Inspired by the artisanal ingredients and simple, rustic flavors of his native Tohoku region, chef-proprietor Shotaro Kamio blends the obscure with the familiar for surprisingly extraordinary tastes. Craft beer, wine and sake. Seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. Comfortable, casual indoor and heated patio garden seating
