Trailblazer Tavern

Photographer: Patricia Chang

Michael Mina’s Trailblazer Tavern carries you away to the islands the minute you step into it with its free-standing lanterns, topographic map-like flooring and ohana vibes. You enter the main dining room under a carved inscription: “E komo mai, e noho mai, e ‘ai a e, wala‘au” which means “Come in, come sit, eat and talk.” There’s lush, green foliage everywhere. Natural trellises and woodwork draw the eyes up to a bright mountainous island mural.

The sprawling 7,000-square-foot restaurant, massive by San Francisco standards, has more than 200 seats, divided across a 72-seat mezzanine, 24-seat bar 47-seat dining room, plus private rooms and a patio area.
