Lazy Bear
New American fare, served communal style
New American · The Mission · $$$$
The Zagat Review
Fans roar with approval for this "revolutionary" Mission "experience" , a "can’t-miss" "dinner party with strangers" that "stuns" with "divine" American set menus matched with "world-class" drinks in a communal setting that boasts an open kitchen and "lots character" ; a "humorous and engaged staff" "takes the stuffiness out of fine dining" and helps you forget you’ll need "another student loan" to settle the tab; P.S. tickets for the two nightly seatings are sold a month in advance.

One of my favorite restaurants of all time. Words can't explain how much I love this restaurant. Words can't even come close. From the the moment you step into the door till the moment you leave, Lazy Bear brings you in to their tempo and makes you relax and focus on the moment. It's evident that everyone working there has a love an passion for food and what they do. They showcase it by the speeches they give in between every dish to explain all the different components of how they obtained the ingredients and how its made. The important part - everything is so darn tasty! Highly highly highly recommend. Get yourself a reservation now!

I'm not sure how you rate a place like this... It's not a restaurant but more of an experience. From start to finish you'll encounter new flavors on foods you've eaten forever and things you never knew existed. Oh, and have you had butter with culters old enough to attend kindergarten? It's amazing. Everything is amazing. Opt for the wine pairing it will enhance the entire experience. You'll be talking about this meal forever.

The atmosphere was great. The cocktails and rink menu was amazing. I wish I could go back just for the cocktails. I enjoyed being able to go up to the kitchen and interacting with all the cooks and the chef. The staff was friendly and approachable. The problem is for the price the food was only ok. I see where they were going it's just that the food became boring. The pea dish for example, they talked about going into detail about making a pea broth and using the hills of the peas. It's this long process that ended up making a very boring flavored dish. I understand the work and effort that went I to making each dish but for over $300 a person, I guess I expected something truly special and it just kind of fell flat. Unique and great experience, just not worth the price.
