A new location doubles the number of diners who can get a piece of chef Jennifer Puccio's hearty American bistro fare, like roasted chicken, steak tartare, and one of the city's best burgers. In hip SoMa, near the main Caltrain station, this spot has a lighter, airy touch with white penny tile floors, marble countertops, and butcher paper emblazoned with the day's specials—including cocktails like the tequila-based la cuchilla. An outdoor patio is jam-packed in good
weather. Chief pastry chef Emily Luchetti takes care of the kitchen's sweet side, and makes us wonder why no one has thought of a farmers' market sundae till now. Avoid the crowds and order a burger off the bar menu.
