Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani, the celebrated duo behind the acclaimed Terra restaurant in Napa Valley, have brought their passion for exceptional dining to their first San Francisco restaurant, Ame. The menu showcases seasonal New American cuisine featuring fresh ingredients from local purveyors, including an assortment of sashimi, crudo, tartare, carpaccio and other raw treatments.

Ame’s menu is artfully complemented by an extensive offering of limited edition sakes and a 500-bottle list of handcrafted wines from around the world. The intimate L-shaped dining room features rich mesquite wood floors and striking surroundings. The interior includes a custom sashimi bar, the restaurant’s signature “Red table” for eight and a stunning hand colored and polished wall creating jewel box vignettes into the kitchen.
