Open since July, last month Cane Rosso began serving nightly three-course dinners: gorgeous suites of some of the tastiest, most meticulously raised meats and produce Northern Cali offers, with a hyper-seasonality that gives you a vivid taste of the here and now. Read the tasty particulars (by yours truly) later today at SFWeekly.com. For a preview, check out SFoodie's paragraph-long excerpt (after the jump).
