This is the epitome of California-chic dining in the trendy Mission District, brought to you by Thomas McNaughton, of upscale pizzeria flour + water fame (another worthy dining option; it’s at 2401 Harrison St.). A covered garden patio provides alfresco dining space year-round; meanwhile, in the open kitchen, you can watch McNaughton create such delectables as halibut crudo with chili, melon rind, avocado, and shiso; basil pappardelle with braised duck, squash, and pistachio-and-squash-blossom pesto; or smoked short ribs with charred eggplant, harissa, and mint. The entrance is set back from the street, to the left of the McNaughton-owned market/cafe, Salumeria, at the same address.
