Delancey Street Restaurant

Delancey Street Restaurant

Delancey Street Restaurant is a key training school of the Delancey Street Foundation, the country’s largest self-help residential organization for people who have hit bottom to completely rebuild their lives. Like the immigrants who came through Ellis Island to Delancey Street on New York’s Lower East Side at the turn of the century to start new lives, newcomers to Delancey Street Foundation are “immigrants” of all races, all ages, all backgrounds, who come together in this community of opportunity of rehabilitation and workforce development.

Since it opened in 1991, the Delancey Street Restaurant has received wonderful responses from the press, from television, and most importantly from customers. Delancey was named one of “San Francisco’s Delicious Dozen” by Jim Wood in Image Magazine‘s Dining Issue; we were awarded a “toque” by the prestigious Gault Milleu’s The Best of San Francisco, 2½ stars by San Francisco Chronicle food critic Michael Bauer, and were named “the Friendliest Restaurant in San Francisco” by Zagat. The restaurant has been featured on several TV shows including CNN and The Food Network‘s “Best of…” series.
