To get in the right frame of mind for this modern French-Mediterranean restaurant, decide that you're willing to try absolutely anything. Chef Suzanne Goin is fantastically inventive, using obscure ingredients in exuberant and unlikely combinations. Fill the center of your table with appetizers and then order a main or two. The lunch and Sunday-night prix fixe menus are among the best deals in town.
