Slanted Door (pictured)
Chef Charles Phan’s vaunted Vietnamese restaurant at the Ferry Building has a large terrace with a view of the bay and the Bay Bridge.
Rhum agricole-lover Thad Vogler, who designed the cocktail menus for Beretta and the Slanted Door, co-owns this airy, rustic-industrial tavern with a supermodern outdoor patio. Chef Brandon Jew sources ingredients from local farms for seasonal dishes like sweet yellow corn soup with charred peppers.
