The Plate • Fresh ingredients, carefully prepared: a good meal
50 - 75 USD
Presidio Heights residents are already obsessed with this Cal-Ital joint, which got its start as a pop-up before carving out this cool and classy niche in the city’s ground zero for low-key millionaires. With its deep navy banquettes and swirling marble bar, it’s an of-the-moment retreat for the moneyed, emphasizing impressive plating that’s photo-perfect. Handmade pastas star on the menu, like perfectly textured orecchiette and broccoli di cicco bathed in a chili-spiked pork sugo. Other dishes are more ambitious, most notably a brûléed foie gras torchon artfully strewn with pickled rhubarb and lavender. Wrap things up with a soft and delicate brown butter vanilla mousse, accented by sourdough ice cream and caramelized milk jam.
