cotogna - san francisco, ca
490 pacific avenue
san francisco, ca 94133

chef michael tusk's michelin two star restaurant quince did not quite make the cut for this trip, but lunch at his more casual cotogna was an easy choice. the space filled to capacity very quickly and was rather loud and boisterous throughout our meal. service was a bit awkward as the duo handling our table did not seem to communicate with each other very well, and the pacing of the meal was rather slow given the number of dishes we ordered. with the above noted, the most important thing about a restaurant is the food, and cotogna left me very satisfied in that regard with everything from the opening pizza to the buttery gateau being stellar in flavor and preparation.
