Spruce – San Francisco – a MICHELIN Guide Restaurant

Set in one of San Francisco’s snazziest neighborhoods, Spruce draws a regular following for its micro-seasonal and thoroughly Californian cuisine that’s both simple and undeniably elegant. Rustic starters may include hand-shaped ravioli filled with fresh ricotta and bathed in a broth of tart whey with fava leaf purée. A roulade of guinea hen stuffed with pork and duck sausage is exquisitely juicy and accompanied by thick fingers of nutty-sweet brown ale toast that is perfect for sopping up every last drop.
For dessert, a decadent crème fraîche cheesecake is thick and creamy with sweet vanilla flavor and a classic graham-cracker crust. Citrus segments and a quenelle of brilliantly tart makrut lime ice cream add a delicious bit of zing.
