The Pacific Heights incarnation of Elizabeth Falkner's name-making restaurant is a bit disjointed: the pastry shop warring with the sit-down restaurant, the minimalist decor at odds with the sophisticated whimsy of Falkner's desserts. Chef Amy Glaze's menus incorporate both tweaked classics (a wonderfully deconstructed beef stroganoff, Chinese chicken salad) and lighter, slightly more cerebral fare (beet-asparagus terrine, beet salad with beef heart) that falls flat as often as it succeeds. Falkner's desserts, though, are as wonderful as ever. Sweets such as her butterscotch-miso mousse and her love letter (raspberry-rose-black pepper cake) are a collage of flavors clipped from dozens of cuisines, with an eye out for the new.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
