San Francisco's RN74, cloned at the renovated Joshua Green building at Fourth and Pike by restaurant empire-builder Michael Mina, is named for a highway in Burgundy. The menu started out high-end Franco-New American, but changed to still-high-end modern French bistro in 2013; the loud, hyper-stylish interior features one of those train-station signs with the flip-over letters, here listing bottles of wine. The sommelier is Jeff Lindsay-Thorsen (Cafe Juanita); as of 2013, after more than one chef change-up, Mina Group corporate chef David Varley had been brought in. Fun facts: Mina was born in Cairo, but he grew up just east of the mountains in Ellensburg, and at one point he worked at the terrible restaurant at the Space Needle.
