A chic and sleek crowd of Mission foodies gathers at this trendy restaurant, nestled in a complex beside sister shop/deli Salumeria, cocktail bar Trick Dog, and coffee shop Sightglass. Wend your way to the central courtyard, with a trickling fountain and large glass doors leading into the main space, where a vast open kitchen faces the simple wood tables. Kitchen renovations resulted in a wood-burning hearth and expanded pasta program. Along the way, you might taste a mound of burrata surrounded by melon cubes, cucumber slices, and purslane tossed in a chili-herb vinaigrette. Gamey pork trotter agnolotti is balanced by lemon verbena; while hearth-roasted hen served in a black chili sauce and paired with chicken cracklings is nothing less than compelling.
