Quince

At Quince, Chef Michael Tusk’s Italianate culinary artistry (as in worthy of italics) is on display in this beautiful Beet Risotto. The dishes offered at Quince always manage to be both artfully unique to the vision of the chef yet lovingly loyal to the classic techniques and ingredients of Italian cuisine.

Whether its a storied lasagna featuring Four Story Hill Farm sweetbreads amid layers of thinly shaved white truffles, or a dazzling display of pastry conceits and confections, a dinner at Quince is always an impressive event.

The service here ranks among the finest on the entire West Coast, combining old school attention with authentic charm. Amid crisp linens and shining glassware guests are pampered with a truly world-class wine program  designed to highlight a menu fashioned from exquisite local produce and both local and imported farmhouse meats and cheeses.

Quince has been at the very top of its game ,and at the tip of every savvy Foodists tongue since the day it first opened back in 2003.
