Commonwealth is a Progressive American restaurant located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. Executive Chef Jason Fox showcases first rate ingredients, incorporating modern techniques and diverse culinary approaches. Commonwealth donates $10 from each of Chef Fox’s inventive tasting menus ($75) to local non-profits.
Food – Commonwealth’s goal is to offer one of the best dining experiences in the Bay Area. Executive Chef Jason Fox’s Progressive American cuisine harmoniously combines flavor palettes from around the world, and a broad range of techniques to create food that is refined, distinctive and satisfying. Fox creates harmonious, layered dishes rather than focusing on any single ingredient or mode of preparation.
Wine – The beverage program consists of a terroir driven wine list that is tailored to the menu and characterized by higher acid, and restrained fruit. Commonwealth also offers a small selection of craft beer and a nightly cocktail made with liquid nitrogen.
Ambiance – Commonwealth is a welcoming and sophisticated space that features hickory, glass, and ambient light in simple yet dynamic combinations. Our goal is to offer the highest standard of service possible, while still maintaining a friendly and convivial atmosphere. Overall, we hope to create an approachable fine-dining experience. Commonwealth’s prices compare favorably with restaurants of the same caliber so that diners may enjoy a broad range of experiences within a single meal. Commonwealth aspires to be a sophisticated neighborhood restaurant, not a hushed temple of haute cuisine.
Community – Commonwealth is named after the early modern concept of organizing for the common good. Ten dollars from the sale of each tasting menu is donated to local charities—a way to indulge conscientiously. We are proud to give back to the community, and also hope to inspire other businesses to adopt a charitable model.
