Benu is housed on the ground floor of a historic building that dates back to 1922–originally the headquarters of the San Francisco Newspaper Company. Crown Point Press, an art studio, gallery, and bookstore, now owns the building and resides directly above the restaurant.
In 2015, Phaidon published Benu–a collection of recipes and essays that explores the restaurant's food, influences, and people who make it possible–with forwards by Thomas Keller and David Chang, designed by Julia Hasting.
