Absolutely gorgeous food, and every plate was a piece of art. A wonderful evening, every bite an experience and every sip a homage to Scandinavian tradition. Strange and comforting and simple and complex all at the very same time.

Plaj is located on the street level at the back of an Inn. The menu is more of a modern eclectic Swedish menu. At our meal we enjoyed scallops that were sliced half thickness and very yummy with cauliflower, greens, sunchoke artichoke pieces covered with...More

Thrilled to join a gaggle of gossipers at one of my favorite spots in San Francisco, Plaj! Chef Roberth and Andrea Sundell are the consummate hosts, and we ripped through most of the menu, making sure to savor each bite and ask endless amounts of...More

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
