Always on the lookout for great food in San Francisco, Jon and I decided to celebrate our sixth anniversary with a dinner at Quince. Quite frankly, it was one of the best meals we’ve had in the city. Quince had everything we were looking for in a special occasion, two-Michelin-starred restaurant: a welcoming atmosphere, delicious food, and impeccable service. The standout dishes on Chef Michael Tusk’s eight-course tasting menu for me were: the Maine lobster, trofie with Nantucket bay scallop, and the tortellini with goose and black truffle. Jon thought his black cod was the best fish dish he’s ever had. We absolutely adored our server, Monique! She was pretty much the best server we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, and she went out of her way—on multiple occasions—to make our night extra special, including rushing outside as we were leaving to say goodbye with to-go cups of hot chocolate!
Photos were taken with my Nikon D600 and 24mm f/1.4 lens. Our table was lit well enough that most of the food shots were taken at f/2 to f/2.8 at 1/50th with reasonable ISOs.
