Californian. Circolo Restaurant & Ultra Lounge might be one of the most successful restaurants in San Francisco. This daring and elegant restaurant, created by club impresario Jon Mayeda and headed by acclaimed chef Martin Castillo, features an undeniably stylish and warm setting and a menu of innovative, Asian- and Latin-influenced Californian cuisine.
The Country has begun to take notice. New York Post hailed Circolo as one of the 10 reasons to cisit San Francisco, while Food & Wine affirmed Circolo's signature cocktails as some of the best in the city. Circolo showcases Executive Chef Joseph Figueiredo making a mark with his award-winning cuisine based on shared plates. Figueiredo's culinary artistry focuses on contemporary California cuisine with a Latin-Asian flair utilizing fresh local organic ingredients. Circolo's miso-glazed sea bass with clery root ensalada and aji amarillo foam has been acclaimed by "The Perfect Spot SF" as the "pièce de resistance" in a line of winning entreès. "Our goal is to create an accessible dining destination for everyone to enjoy," he says.
