A delightful new restaurant that offers many classics with a twist, Taste on Ellis is becoming known for its shared dining concept, which allows guests to experience the wide variety of flavors on the menu. When you dine in this style, the meal becomes less about individual consumption and more about a shared experience.

The most requested menu items are the charred octopus, hot stone Wagyu, and the mouthwatering, exquisitely presented Tomahawk steak. This 28-day-aged, 32-ounce Tomahawk steak is served with cilantro chimichurri, roasted Brussels sprouts, and baby carrots in a balsamic reduction—call the restaurant to order in advance (415.568.2525), whether for a special occasion or for a weeknight foodie adventure. The restaurant also offers a full breakfast menu and bar bites in Hotel Fusion lobby lounge.

Enjoy your meal with a signature cocktail like the P.O.G. Mojito (Plantation rum, Amaro Montenegro, mint and li hing powder)—a perfect example of Taste's passion for Hawaiian and Hispanic cuisines. You won't be disappointed. // Taste on Ellis, at Hotel Fusion, 134 Ellis St., tasteonellis.com
