Cafe Townsend Fine Dining

For a night out on the town

Cafe Townsend's visionary chef leads the way in a culinary revolution. Proclaimed by many to be the best chef in the world today, Chef Bienni blends earthy seasonal flavors and bold ingredients to create exquisite contemporary cuisine.

The name Cafe Townsend comes from our first restaurant, located in a historic building on Townsend Street in San Francisco, where we opened the doors in 1985. We've replicated the elegant interior, exceptional service, and world-class cuisine in our restaurants around the country.
