In a quest to eat at all 3000 San Francisco restaurants, Linda and Mike L. McColgan culinary journey recently took them to the new opened SEAGLASS restaurant sitting gracefully at Pier 15 home of the new Exploratorium.Linda and I enjoyed the awesome views and sensational sushi bar. Everything was very fresh and prepared with delicate perfection. The sushi bar has a dry ice display on the bar that simulates comets revolving around the sun. In addition, there are Food Tricycles—solar-powered, Dutch-style tricycles—parked around the perimeter of Pier 15, selling coffee, baked goods, and organic soft-serve ice cream. The Exploratorium is also a treat for young or old who appreciate many scientific inventions.
We would definitely recommend this great new addition for the great city by the bay for great family food and fun.
From the web site,”The Exploratorium at Pier 15 features two eateries and a food program developed by Loretta Keller, Executive Chef, and Clay Reynolds, Operational Partner, both of iconic San Francisco restaurant COCO500. Working with Bon Appetit, the Exploratorium’s official Food Operations Partner, Chef Keller has devised a family-friendly, multicultural, seasonal, locally sourced food program that showcases small producers.
The SEAGLASS Restaurant is the Exploratorium’s flagship dining spot—a sit-down venue with stunning views at the east end of the museum campus. Menu items range from the bold to the familiar. Family-friendly offerings include tacos and quesadillas with organic black beans, Welsh rarebit (our riff on grilled cheese), pizzas, salads, and sandwiches made with just-picked seasonal ingredients. You’ll also find Chef Keller’s signature batter-fried green beans made with local ale, and fresh seafood approved by the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch list. Adventurous eaters will find organic grain salads made with kelp gathered in Marin, Mendocino, and Monterey counties, and “living foods” like traditional Japanese pickles, kimchi, and sauerkraut. Large-scale versions of Icy Bodies and Thermal Mixing exhibits are incorporated into the restaurant’s interior."
