San Francisco: Perbacco


Perbacco  230 California St./Battery St., Financial District, (415) 955-0663.  L M-F, D M-Sat; $$$.  Located next door to Tadich’s, this expansive restaurant is a less-touted surprise.  The action in the open-kitchen in back is worth checking out.  The Italian menu is loaded with good things, including fritto misto, mozzerella di bufala, a brown-buttered pork chop with charred cabbage and lingonberry juice, quail with black chanterelle and sunchoke ragout, seared sea scallops with brown-buttered cauliflower and black truffle salsa verde.  My choices were a salad of roasted pears, greens, and hazelnuts; a filet mignon with truffled potato puree; and the most scrumptious hazelnut-brown butter cookie/cake stuffed with fudge.  From the vast wine selection, I zeroed in on a delicious Amarone from the Veneto wine region of Italy, and if you like reds I suggest you do that, too.
