Quince, a “celebrated, upscale destination delivering seasonal, locally sourced cuisine and wines,” is planning to close temporarily. According to a recent report by SF Eater, the restaurant will shut its doors in late January to update its interior design, “with the goal of making the space lighter and brighter.”
The three-Michelin-star restaurant situated in San Francisco’s Jackson Square is owned by Lindsay and Chef Michael Tusk. Its menu features “Californian contemporary cuisine with Italian influences,” and “serves nightly-changing tasting menus highlighting the restaurant’s unique partnership with Fresh Run Farm,” according to the restaurant’s website.
Eater reports that the renovations include installing floor-to-ceiling glass doors, decreasing the number of seats, and introducing an a la carte menu.
Quince plans to reopen in the summer of 2023. In the meantime, patrons can enjoy fare by Chef Tusk — voted “Best Chef: Pacific” by the James Beard Foundation in 2011 — at Verjus and Cotogna, the couple’s “Euro-cool wine bar, bistro, and bottle shop” at 528 Washington Street.
