Imagine dining at a Michelin star restaurant for only $65 at dinner. Actually don’t imagine, book it. Luce means light in Italian and with floor-to-ceiling windows and soaring ceilings it is an airy space that’s still quiet and somehow feels intimate accented by impeccably smooth service. The three-course menu includes a deconstructed take on s’mores with chocolate, marshmallow, and smoked caramel. Make a reservation at Luce for SF Restaurant Week 2016.
