Room with a View — and Heat

A well-known S.F. chef amps up the menu at Sutro's at the Cliff House.

We saved a little room to try two desserts (both $9): the unusual and very spicy caramelized pineapple, flavored with vanilla and hot bird's-eye chile, served with green jalapeño ice cream (cooling after the heat of the fruit) and macadamia nut brittle, and an unusually dense butterscotch pot de crème, served wrapped with a huge almond tuile.

Raw times two: Ahi tuna tartare with uncooked quail egg.
