San Francisco, California
$$

Alta CA, the latest from Daniel Patterson of two-Michelin-star Coi, sits in the tech-fueled Mid-Market district, across from Twitter headquarters. But how to sum it up in a single tweet? Start with “casual chic,” given the dressed-up comfort dishes like deviled eggs crowned with crisp sunchokes, and fried beef tendons that are California’s answer to chicharrones. Even at its more involved—duck confit brushed with an apricot glaze; sautéed squid with almond, avocado, grapefruit, and mustard greens—the cooking remains grounded and easy-going. And though the space itself is tricked out for gadget-heads, with free Wi-Fi and tableside outlets for juicing your electronics, the laid-back vibe and killer cocktails make it a sweet place to unplug.
