January 30, 2013 - Super Bowl Recipes by Super Chefs
Food Fashionista gathered 12 Super Bowl recipes from super Chefs around the Bay Area, and featured One Market Restaurant Chef Mark Dommen's Chipotle Chili Glazed Dungeness Crab recipe.
"I chose this recipe because I wanted to do something with crab, keeping the main ingredient local as the 49ers are in the Superbowl. I also wanted to make it finger food and fun so that people had to use their hands to eat it. I like to compare it to the shellfish version of chicken wings and something that would go really well with cold beer on Superbowl Sunday. The crab could easily be substituted for head on shrimp in the shell."

03.29.11 - By exchewing trends, this 18-year old feels timeless
Tasting Table SF: Classic Tables: One Market
"...After 18 years, you might expect the veneer to have worn thin. But though the menu is larded with signatures, from bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin... to Bradley's Caesar salad (...a nod to founding chef Bradley Ogden), it doesn't feel dated....Mark Dommen, who has been chef-partner since 2004, doesn't play to trends. Strong technique, bolstered by the restaurant's proximity to the farmers market, is the magic formula. Dommen deploys it well... By expertly walking the line between straightforward and outré, Dommen has created a timeless restaurant... One Market is not a restaurant that has changed drastically over its nearly two decades, but it is one that has grown up in fine fashion." Photo by John Benson
03.07.11 - Bring me his head
Inside Scoop: Michael Bauer in Between Meals, Food trends, Restaurants
… “whole animal” is now a buzz word used (and probably misused) as frequently these days as ”local, sustainable and humanely raised.”… This idea seems to have captivated chefs and diners… This trend bridges all price ranges and styles of restaurants.
One Market just concluded a four course rabbit extravaganza for $45 ($18 for wine pairing). Chef Mark Dommen features a different animal every Friday and Saturday night. On that week he used Devil’s Gulch Ranch rabbit in boudin blanc; and in a pasta course with ravioli and mustard greens with a foie gras emulsion. The main course was bacon wrapped loin with pumpkin puree and pickled mushrooms.
Last week Dommen prepared a lamb dinner and this week and in subsequent weeks he’ll feature veal (March 11-12), goat (March 18-19) and duck (March 25-26).

One Market has never been better:
PaperCity, "San Francisco Update" (July, 2005):
"I think [Mark Dommen's] cooking at One Market has never been better, the place never cheerier, the service never more accomplished. In some ways, this is the quintessential San Francisco restaurant: big, wide, open, with huge window overlooking the refurbished Ferry Building and Embarcadero, and a menu that stresses the best seafood in the market, from soft-shelled crabs in season to wonderful grilled fish and the city's best French fries. Plus, it isn't all that expensive.
Stylish big-city dining:
San Jose Mercury News, Sheila Himmel (December 10, 2004):
"Warm lighting and views of the bay make the dining room inviting at One Market. ...Like other restaurants run by Bradley Ogden, One Market features farm-fresh American cuisine and sea-fresh fish." read full review
One Market's former Chef/Partner and now Group Chef Adrian Hoffman Named One of SF's Rising Star Chefs:
San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, Food Editors Michael Bauer and Miriam Morgan (April 8, 2001): "SF's Five Rising Star Chefs"
--"In San Francisco, (Hoffman) says, 'People are more interested in food and local ingredients. It's more competetive, so it's more fun to cook."
-- "His (Hoffman's) biggest weapon for wowing diners...is reviving classics that most Americans haven't heard of."
--"(Hoffman) feels strongly that understanding a culture will make you a better cook...it sounds like an intellectual pursuit, for sure, but Hoffman also has the passion for the nitty-gritty, and his food has a restraint that is rare these days. "
Three and a half stars--and comments from Food Editor Michael Bauer:
San Francisco Chronicle, Food Editor Michael Bauer (February 2, 2001): Three and a half stars "One Market Hits Right Notes Delicious combinations, smooth service"
--"It's about as good as it gets under (chef) Adrian Hoffman. "
-- "At One Market, the descriptions are simple, but the pairings made my mouth water"
--"The service is smooth and efficient, something that's becoming more and more rare these days. "
--" One Market, like the view right outside its door, has been reborn. It's a destination in its own right. "
--"3 1/2 stars"
