Young husband-and-wife team Rupert and Carrie Blease bring solid kitchen credentials (Michelin-starred Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons in England, Per Se and Blue Hill in New York, Central Kitchen and Commonwealth in SF) to their small restaurant, located on a busy Russian Hill corner. Louisa Smith, a California winemaker and friend of the chefs, is responsible for the wine list, a tight collection of high-acid whites like chenin from Touraine and Txakolina from Spain, and lighter reds like gamay and cab franc from the Loire.
