Pearl 6101

An outgrowth of Pizzetta 211—a tiny Outer Richmond pizza place that made this list last year—this new project next door is drawing folks from across town. The best place to start is the Pearl Martini. Taken in a salty direction by Manzanilla Sherry and a pickled sea bean, it mirrors the ocean fog that often blows through the neighborhood as evening arrives. From there, it’s on to things like oysters, brandade fritters and handkerchief pasta with white Bolognese, maybe washed down with a bottle of Analemma’s Blanc de Noirs from the Columbia Gorge.
