Please welcome our new Executive Chef James London to the Elite kitchen. Chef London brings a wealth of culinary experience to San Francisco from some of New York City's best restaurants, and has worked along side culinary giants Jacques Pepin and André Soltner at the French Culinary Institute in New York. His culinary philosophy is simple: cook delicious food based on quality ingredients.

This beautiful original Art Deco building began as the Lincoln Grill in 1928, and in 1981, The Elite Cafe was launched. Since its inception, The Elite has served exquisite food with the flavors of New Orleans.

Our current menu continues this tradition with an emphasis on seasonality, the freshest local ingredients, and a lighter touch in our preparation. From the original mahogany booths to the beautiful full bar to the unsurpassed people watching on the Upper Fillmore, The Elite Cafe has something for everyone.
