Acquerello Restaurant in San Francisco

  A restaurant does not stay in business for 22 years unless it's great.  Well, Acquerello, Italian word for watercolor, is one of those great restaurants.   Nestled in the Nob hills of San Francisco, this little gem had been awarded one Michelin star every year since 2007 (the first year Michelin review SF restaurants).

I've been here a few times and I have never been disappointed with the food or service.  The way they construct their menu is actually quite clever.  You have the option of their classic tasting menu or seasonal tasting menu.  You can also choose three course (appetizer, entree, and dessert), four course, or five course dinner.  If you don't feel like to eat a lot and/or spend a lot, this is a good way to economize your tummy/pocket.  

One of my favorite dish is Ridged pasta with “foie gras” scented with black truffles and Marsala.  Obviously they can't do foie gras anymore because California had banned foie gras so they use pate instead.  So the dish isn't as good as it used to be....  but it still is a fantastic dish.  If you go, you must order it!
