San Francisco, California

Located on Post Street in the heart of San Francisco’s Japantown, Bushitei’s French California Fusion cuisine has won many acclaims including a coveted 1-star rating in the 2007 Michelin Guide. Hayashida Architects worked with the owner, Tak Matsuba, to bring to reality a design that originated in Japan. The interior décor is a modern mix of glass and stainless steel, with a framework constructed of wood siding salvaged from an 1863 Japanese structure. Bushitei Restaurant continues to be one of San Francisco’s premiere places to dine.
