Though it originally opened as the sibling to Chef Difu’s Nick’s on Main, Nick’s Next Door is now his sole restaurant—even more confusing given that it’s actually across the street from his original spot and hidden behind a patio, in the shadow of a towering redwood tree. One fact is evident, though: the crowd here has ritzy tastes, often flocking in from the high-end cigar shop located merely steps away. Upscale American bistro cooking is the focus, with such first-rate specialties as pan-fried abalone served with soft risotto and crispy Brussels sprouts, as well as meatloaf with potatoes and wild mushroom gravy. Whether you dine in the cozy and elegant dining room with its black-and-gray motif or outdoors, you'll receive a warm welcome-often from Nick himself.
