The Restaurant Quince obtains three stars in the MICHELIN Guide San Francisco 2017!

With six restaurants distinguished with three stars, San Francisco confirms the quality of the cuisine in Northern California.

Three star restaurants

In this selection, the restaurant Quince gets three stars. "For several years now we have closely watched chef Michael TUSK’s cuisine; classic cuisine with Italian flavours that the chef has gradually developed to become more and more contemporary over time. In his cuisine every dish, even the simplest, is exceptional," comments Michael Ellis, the International Director in charge of the MICHELIN Guides. "It is these fine, sophisticated creations using precise techniques, which now make Quince a unique experience for the customer: an experience that is worth the trip."
