I was so impressed by the cocktails, Hakkasan

Cliff House bar bottles

I never miss a visit to 

Café Claude in SF

The Niscose salad is always my favorite, Café Claude

excellent cocktails, Graziano had the simple martini while I experimented with 

the Chinese Mule (Purity vodka, Junnila sake lime) at Hakkasan

organic cucumber vodka sakatini, Hakkasan

yummy vegatable pot stickers, Hakkasan

the bar with a waiter in action, Hakkasan

we went to the W for an aperitivo and I sent the first sparkling rosé back because it had been opened for I don't know how long, apart from that the place just sucked.  Not what I remembered it to be in the late 90's when it WAS hip and happening, not any more!
