This corner bistro remains one of the city’s most charming spots, a place of neighborhood joie de vivre and low-key California cuisine. Chef Melissa Perello’s bright menus change daily. If it’s in-season, try the Sonoma-raised Liberty Duck confit with ricotta dumplings. Nightly reservations are a prize, but ten spacious counter seats are reserved for walk-ins.
