Chef Michael and Lindsay Tusk have created one of the most gorgeous dining rooms in the city, with stunning artwork, flowers and linens, and exquisite care paid to their highly polished level of service—all the things you need to earn two Michelin stars. The tasting menus feature elevated Italian cuisine with a California sensibility, and are very much in sync with local ingredients and seasonality. Tusk’s pastas are especially notable, and the luxurious touches on the menu always make a meal feel extra-special. Note that during the week (Mon–Thu), there is a seasonal menu that costs a touch less than the Quince tasting menu. Wine pairings from their deep cellar are impressive and spot-on. There is an adjoining posh salon with a nightly menu of canapés, caviar and dishes from the tasting menu that can be ordered á la carte.
