Michael Mina Renews Westin Deal, Not Going Anywhere



    How Much Sleep do you Really Need?

    Ever since Michael Mina (the chef) decided to scale back Michael Mina (the San Francisco restaurant) to five days a week, rumors have been swirling surrounding the four-star flagship. Eater SF recently chatted with Mina himself, who basically laid out the situation at his first restaurant for everyone: the restaurant is not closing, people.

    Yes, the original five-year contract with the historic hotel expired, and negotiations went on for a few months, but Michael Mina was never in danger of closing (moving, perhaps, but not closing). Fortunately for everyone involved, the respective parties have worked out a deal and according to Mina, everything is "100% done, signed and [they] could not be happier." So, Michael Mina is still a fixture at the Westin St. Francis.
