The minimalist dining room here seems a fitting setting for chef Richard Reddington's up-to-date menu. The culinary influences include California, Mexico, Europe, and Asia, but the food always feels modern and never fussy. The glazed pork belly with apple purée, set amid a pool of soy caramel, is a prime example of the East-meets-West style. The seafood preparations—among them petrale sole, clams, and chorizo poached in a saffron-curry broth—are deft variations on
the original dishes. For the full experience, consider the five-course tasting menu ($80 per person, $125 with wine pairing). For a quick bite, order small plates and a cocktail and sit at the bar.
