About Estatorio Ornos

Formerly the space housing famed California Chef Michael Mina’s eponymous flagship restaurant, Ornos is a modern Greek seafood restaurant with one of San Francisco’s largest wine lists. Very much in the model of the modern Mediterranean seafood palaces like New York’s Milos (this trend started in the middle 2000s). On the menu expect lots of stunningly fresh grilled seafood as well as traditional Greek mezze.

The wine list has plenty of the classics you would expect from a large fine-dining restaurant list (likely holdovers from when this was Mina’s flagship), but what really shines here is a comprehensive commitment to the great wines of Greece and points farther east into the Llevantine countries. These are spectacular wines that the wine trade celebrates, but in other venues there might be a more difficult time getting them into glasses; be sure to try some top flight Assyrtiko from Santorini, or the Nebbiolo-like Xinomavro from Macedonia, or Cretian Liatiko, to name a few.
