Welcome to Avery restaurant in San Francisco’s Fillmore District. Uniting elevated food with a fun atmosphere, we believe that an elegant meal should be lively and relaxed, never hushed. Our two tasting menus offer vibrant and creative dishes that celebrate global flavors and seasonal produce while our beverage program specializes in rare and unique sake. Our space is intimate and refined, but not without its playful touches.
Drawing inspiration from American modern painter Milton Avery, the restaurant’s namesake, our style is bright, bold, and imaginative.
Chef/Owner Rodney Wages
From an early age, Rodney knew he wanted to work with his hands. While at some of the country's most respected kitchens - The French Laundry, Benu, Atelier Crenn, and Saison - he honed his skills and style before embarking on his own project, a pop-up called RTB, in late 2016. In March 2018, RTB found its permanent expression as Avery allowing Rodney to continue to evolve his style of cooking bold but nuanced, elegant but craveable, exacting but imaginative.
