Quince & Co
Situated in San Francisco’s historic Jackson Square, Lindsay and Chef Michael Tusk own and operate Quince & Co Hospitality; a collection of unique restaurant concepts ranging from a Three Starred Michelin flagship to more casual, volume-based concepts, all unified in a commitment to exemplary hospitality, creativity, and a desire to innovate and continually reinvent. Quince & Co is a values-driven company committed to creating rewarding experiences for all team members with growth opportunities for advancement.
Quince is a Three-star Michelin star restaurant that features California contemporary cuisine. In 2020, the restaurant was one of the first recipients in the country to be awarded a Green Star from Michelin for its work with local farmers and suppliers with much of the produce coming directly from our own Farm located in nearby West Marin County. As such, the restaurant’s menus are fiercely seasonal, with the ingredients informing and inspiring all creations from the culinary team. www.quincerestaurant.com
