New American Restaurant San Francisco


International Smoke, the wildly popular collaboration between Chef Michael Mina and lifestyle expert and bestselling cookbook author Ayesha Curry, opened on November 13, 2017 at 301 Mission Street. Inspired by Curry’s and Mina’s individual heritages and travels, International Smoke explores global approaches to fire, grilling, and smoke to create flavorful dishes that bring communities together all around the world. Food is at the heart of community, and this restaurant truly celebrates this.

Curry and Mina have created a menu that highlights an array of quality spices, products, and cooking techniques from around the globe. International Smoke will take guests on a journey to distant places with elevated takes on classic dishes such as: Jerk spice-seasoned Double Duck Wings, sticky mango, and revered Jamaican condiment known as green seasoning. Lemongrass Pork Chop, thinly sliced and charred on the grill, is served with stir fried clams, glass noodles, soy and lime. Binchōtan-Grilled Lobster with Japanese curry-spiced yakiudon. Punjabi-spiced Fish Fry with turmeric pickles, and raïta. The menu also features a section called “Three Little Pigs,” offering three different inspired preparations and flavors of pork such as St. Louis Spareribs, Cuban “Mojo” Ribs, and Japanese Miso Ribs.

This place is absolutely amazing. The food is so rich and flavorful. The menu is quite pricey but definitely worth it. The ambiance is intimate with dim lights and candles. (I went at 9pm). This place is packed and would recommend reserving a table. The service staff is consistent and welcoming and the manager Jeremy was the most hospitable!! Only downside is that this place may not be too noticeable to those not from the city, and parking can be a nuisance but then again it is in SF and it’s so worth it for this place. FAVORITE is the curry cornbread! (Don’t knock it till you try it)

Very nice menu with BBQ from many different origins. The dinner is served family style and that makes for a fun meal for a group. There are a lot of interesting flavors. My personal favorites were the rib tip Mac and cheese and the brussel sprouts. The rib sampler was great getting to try a wide variety of flavors. The keylime pie desert was top notch with a solid bitter finish.

We had the best time this New Year’s Eve.
The ambiance was intimate and cozy.
There was a buffet special going on and everything my husband and I ate was delicious. From what I can remember there was some cured meat, a variety of dried fruits, nuts and cheeses, fresh oysters, king crab legs, jumbo shrimp, for appetizers and had prepared fall off the bone ribs, juicy prime rib, flavorful salmon Wellington, tasty jerk chicken pot pie for entrees. Their sides included brussel sprouts, mushrooms, rice and beans, fresh quinoa salad, a wedge salad, scalloped potatoes and horseradish mashed potatoes. There was a dessert table packed with chocolate mousse, NY cheesecake, variety of chocolates, and a tart that I was too full to even try.
The staff were friendly and attentive from the hostesses to our servers. The bartenders were entertaining and the signature drinks were enjoyable. We most definitely recommend dining at International Smoke.
