Ayesha Curry’s New Restaurant Heats Up San Francisco
Ayesha Curry’s new San Francisco restaurant officially opened its doors yesterday. But, unless you were able to snag a reservation within the first few minutes of its launch on OpenTable, you won’t be able to get in those doors for months.
The beloved Food Network host, cookbook author, and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry’s wife partnered with restaurateur-chef Michael Mina for her latest venture.
The upscale restaurant, International Smoke, has a menu featuring smoke-infused, global flavors—including barbecued meats, charcoal grilled shellfish, and Japanese-style entrées—and a comfortably elegant atmosphere peppered with graffiti in various languages.
“I love every second of this,” Ayesha told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I love it all. And we have a team that with me, is so patient and they’re all so hardworking.”
“Tonight was a dream! Except it’s my reality.” captioned Ayesha on her Instagram post from the first night of service.
The eatery has been described as a place “for friends, family and casual date nights.” But while the restaurant is casual and not pretentious, getting in may require some patience—it’s currently booked through February. If you don’t want to wait, or don’t live in San Fran, consider making reservations at Ayesha’s other spots opening soon in Waikiki and Houston.
