54 Mint is the type of restaurant that makes you feel like you've discovered a gem. A casual Italian restaurant tucked away in the Mint Plaza around the corner from the hotel, chef uses local fish, meat, and produce, but everything ealse comes from Italy. The olive oil, salt, vinegar, and durham wheat that the pasta is made from all originate from Italy. Not only is the cuisine italian, it tastes like Italy. Take advantage of their patio seating on a rare warm San Francisco afternoon.
