For nearly a century, the landmark address of 2100 Van Ness Avenue has hosted some of the finest meals on the West Coast. When Harris’ Restaurant opened in 1984, in the old location of Grisons, it continued the rich tradition of luxurious dining in a comfortable sophisticated environment. In fact, Harris’ was ranked as one of the nation’s Top 10 Steak houses by the Wine Spectator.
Here’s why: accompanying the world-renowned beef, chicken and seafood dishes are an array of imaginative and tasty appetizers, side dishes, salads, and desserts, and the top wines of the West Coast. And if that weren’t enough, Harris’ martini is as meaty as the beef that hangs in the famous display window out front. Following the meal, our pastry chef dishes up a variety of attractive and original desserts, including a Baked Alaska, a classic Crème Brûlée and Pecan Pie.
It’s the main courses, though, that are the centerpiece of the restaurant. Harris’ uses a 21 day dry-aging process for its beef that creates tender and succulent cuts of meat that are sliced on the premises. In today’s market of vacuum sealed steaks our aging process is unique and guarantees a memorable and rare experience. We hand pick large primal cuts of beef that are aged in specially built aging boxes. After 21 days the loins are trimmed and cut into the finest steaks to be offered. And just as tasty as the meat are some of the restaurant’s other specialties, including Whole Maine Lobster, American Lamb Chops, and grilled Salmon.
