HOT PROPERTY Renovation Innovation by Deborah Parker Wong / photos by Hardy Wilson M andarin Oriental, San Francisco has had a busy year. The recently renovated hotel celebrated its 25th anniversary as the luxury chain���s irst property in the United States with a complete transformation. Tranquil colors and French D��co-inspired interiors may have replaced dark wood and red accents, but there is nothing tranquil about the cuisine or beverage programs at the hotel���s signature restaurant, Brasserie S & P, named in part for the property���s location at Sansome and Pine Streets. Brasserie-style California cuisine created by Executive Chef Adam Mali sets the stage for an inspired wine and cocktail program that adds value to the Mandarin���s luxury hotel dining experience and has made the restaurant a destination for the trade as well. ���The wine and cocktail programs that debuted with the opening of our new restaurant, accentuate what we���re passionate about,��� says Nicole Kosta, Food and Beverage Director for the 158-room property.
