Kuleto’s embodies the vintage charm and refined class of historic San Francisco. Lavish marble floors and cathedral-like vaulted ceilings greet diners and immediately plunge them into an atmosphere of sublime sophistication. A 40-foot-long carved wood bar is a highlight, transported from the Palace Hotel and steeped in a history that precedes the 1906 earthquake. While the atmosphere is almost regal in its ostentation, Kuleto’s Northern Italian-inspired menu embodies the satisfaction of a home-cooked meal, albeit with masterful execution. Kuleto’s is an exercise in true sensual gratification, an immensely pleasurable feast for the eyes and the taste buds.
