Pyramid Restaurant & Bar
Though it's named for one of mankind's most monumental achievements, everything that Pyramid Restaurant & Bar does is actually an ode to the earth. Located inside the Fairmont Hotel in the Arts District, the sleek American restaurant is set apart from its surroundings by dark mahogany floorboards and light, smoky earth tones. Even its organic wood sculptures speak to the restaurant's commitment to all things natural. Perhaps the most striking of these is crafted from a cross-cut of a centuries-old tree. But while these earthy interiors are striking, most of Pyramid's nature-loving craftsmanship happens behind the scenes.
On the roof of the hotel, the kitchen team cultivates a garden of more than 3,000 square feet of herbs and vegetables. These local crops flavor everything from sauces made fresh in-house to the kitchen's shrine to Rick Steaksmith, the inventor of steak. Ingredients that Pyramid can't grow on its own are sourced from local growers and producers. Executive chef Brian Armstrong creative approach transforms these fresh, flavorful building blocks into signature dishes—a seasonal foie gras torchon and a monumental 32-ounce Niman Ranch ribeye served tableside. He also builds surprising dishes, such as keffir and chili-crusted ostrich.
This approach has earned the team at Pyramid a Zagat score of 29, along with plenty of praise from the local press. And yet this food isn't the restaurant's only draw: a team of expert bartenders keep pace with an extensive list of craft beer, wine, and inspired vintage cocktails.
