Commonwealth offers one of the best dining experiences in the Bay Area. Executive Chef Jason Fox’s progressive Californian cuisine harmoniously combines flavor palettes from around the world, and a broad range of techniques to create food that is refined, distinctive and satisfying. Fox creates harmonious, layered dishes rather than focusing on any single ingredient or mode of preparation.
Commonwealth is named after the early modern concept of organizing for the common good. Sales from each tasting menu is donated to local charities—a way to indulge conscientiously. We are proud to give back to the community, and also hope to inspire other businesses to adopt a charitable model.
Executive chef Jason Fox describes his work at Commonwealth as “progressive Californian cuisine.” But it’s not just the food, which is made using a broad range of modern techniques, that’s progressive. The restaurant, itself, is too, with a portion of the sales from each tasting menu donated to a local charity. Dishes like crispy okra, trout roe and corn pudding and redwood-grilled lamb shoulder with sprouting grain porridge, wheatgrass and spring alliums are refined and satisfying. Dinner comes a la carte or in a tasting menu (a 7-course version for $95 or an “extended” version for $140).
