Melissa Perello’s second restaurant in Lower Pacific Heights is as personal as her beloved Frances—it has a welcoming neighborhood feel, elegant but relaxed, with thoughtful touches like reclaimed wood tables, cozy lighting and beautiful pottery. The cuisine here is California-meets-Mediterranean with dishes that highlight the seasonal bounty like tagliatelle with sea urchin butter, confit jolly tomato shishito and pangrattato. Desserts like wild flower honey crumb pudding with mission fig, honey toffee and creme fraiche are well worth the splurge.
