music with your meal


If music be the food of love…play on.

Over 400 hundred years later, Orsino’s opening line still resonates.

If you’ve had the pleasure of dining at flour + water, you might have noticed, we like music. A lot. An eclectic mix. And preferably a little loud.

As you enter the restaurant, every evening on the host stand is a playlist. Which like the menu, changes daily. In a similar vein to the wine pairings we create for the pasta tasting menu, the playlists are designed (by our music director, katie mathis), to elevate your dining experience and make it all round, more enjoyable. Take the playlist home, recreate it on spotify to tickle your aural senses and enjoy fond memories of a great evening.

Noted for being one of the most progressive cities for food, San Franciscans are utterly spoilt for choice. As more creative ways are thought of to bring together key elements for a memorable meal, enjoyable dining experiences keep getting more enjoyable. We have Chef Thomas McNaughton at the helm with his flavorsome fare and music has been an important part of the flour +water experience from day one.

In a city with more foodies than you could shake a spoon at, who work hard and play hard with multiple music playing idevices, we’re gifted in the art of turning on and tucking in. With so much variety available, more people are seeking well curated experiences. If you like your food full of flavor, your wines carefully paired, your music a little loud, in a room lit by candles, with some of the hottest servers in the bay area, play on.
