Chinatown, North Beach, and the Financial District all converge outside the Hilton hotel that houses 750 Restaurant & Bar. Befitting this location, the eatery's chefs draw inspiration from a variety of Eastern and Western culinary traditions and introduce occasional touches of Northern Californian flair. This experimentation is apparent in the kitchen's reinvented eggs benedict, which includes a traditional english muffin topped with spicy kimchi, a fried egg, seared ahi tuna, and citrus-tinged hollandaise sauce. Pineapple-teriyaki glaze and pickled ginger lend Pacific Rim flavors to the slow-roasted free-range chicken, and pan-seared salmon is crusted with herbs and topped with a distinctly Californian citrus-avocado relish. The decor at 750 Restaurant & Bar embraces a modern aesthetic. A glass-enclosed fireplace greets diners as soon as they enter, lending a bit of dramatic flourish to the dining room's elegantly simple neutral-toned chairs and tables draped with crisp white linens. In contrast, the bar area adopts a warmer color scheme. Red leather captain’s chairs and mocha-brown booth seating surround short cocktail tables made of glass and wrought iron. Visitors can relax while they enjoy drinks and catch games on the five flat-screen televisions.
