San Francisco, California
$$$

Bill your restaurant as a “modern bistro,” and you give yourself permission to be a lot of things. At Pacific Heights hot spot Nico, French-born Nicolas Delaroque and his wife, Andrea, take advantage of that creative leeway with a menu that comes off as at once rustic and refined. A gathering of peas makes a showing in a bath of its own jus, with white peaches, fromage blanc, and nutty quinoa. Moist chile pepper cod, topped with frothy fish foam, takes on the earthy flavors of artichoke barigoule. In keeping with the cuisine, the dining room is elegant without feeling fussy, its blocky wooden tables left uncovered for cooking that is worthy of white cloths.
