Named for a recipe for quail (California’s state bird), State Bird Provisions has evolved into an inventive Michelin starred restaurant that has garnered something of a cult following. The menu is divided into Provisions, Toast and Pancakes and Commandables—the latter two served as ȧ la carte items, such as the signature crispy CA State Bird and sourdough pancakes with sauerkraut, pecorino and ricotta. The nightly “provisions,” small bites like Spanish octopus with butter beans, green olive and kosho make their rounds on dim sum-style rolling carts. Get there as the restaurant is opening its doors at 5:30pm if you hope to grab one of State Bird’s coveted walk-in seats, including those at the chef’s counter.
