2 • SPRING/SUMMER 2010 Menus of Marin


many wonderful finedining terms, the word menu is of French origin—it derives from the Latin for “something made small” and became popular during the 18th century when Parisian restaurants used it to mean a detailed list of food offerings. Today it means so much more—in Marin especially, where foodloving community members will often plan their entire day around where they’ll be dining tonight.

SPRING/SUMMER 2010

Our spring and summer issue of Menus of Marin remains, like its age-old counterparts, a detailed list of food offerings. But unlike the days of La Fayette, modern Marin boasts a wealth of diverse

communities, various international cuisines and palates more refined than the taste-tester at the palace of Louis XVI. So once again, the Pacific Sun offers our indispensable town-by-town menu of Marin restaurants, with up-to-date info on cuisine, hours of operation and price range. To borrow another delicious French term… bon appétit! —Jason Walsh, Editor

Raise a glass...to Ristobar! Emporio Rulli introduces new San Francisco enoteca with casual elegance BY SAMANTHA CAMPOS



y now, the Emporio Rulli name is synonymous with excellence in Italian pastry, wine and scrumptious caffè fare. Master pastry chef/restaurateur Gary Rulli—along with his wife, Jeannie—opened the flagship pasticceria in historic downtown Larkspur 20 years ago. Since then, the popular caffè expanded its offerings to include a line of organic coffee and espresso, as well as fine wines and a selection of authentic Italian foods and specialty cakes. The original location subsequently birthed several Rulli eateries—with small outposts at San Francisco International Airport and bustling Union Square—and the latest, Ristobar, an elegant yet casual wine bar and restaurant in San Francisco’s fashionable Marina District. Along with executive chef Angelo Auriana, Rulli opened Ristobar the first week in February at 2300 Chestnut Street, in a neighborhood with a distinctive nighttime atmosphere. Rulli wanted to provide a wine bar that would appeal to the area’s hip, young professionals, as well as sophisticated diners out for a leisurely evening. “We had this idea of creating a modern Italian restaurant that’s casual,” explained Rulli, “a 8 • SPRING/SUMMER 2010 Menus of Marin

place to come for a glass of wine, some appetizers or a cheese plate, and move on—or sit down and enjoy a full meal. Our menu is flexible.” Indeed, a paradisaical plethora of rustic Italian delicacies is offered by way of small plates and artisanal pizza. Palates will initially be tempted by Ristobar’s extensive selection of affettati (cured meats) and formaggi (cheeses), including the popular “king of salumi” pork culatello, Tuscan-style finocchiona, traditional tartufotto ham with decadent truffle flavors, along with complex and creamy rosso di langa and raschera cheeses from the Piemonte region of Italy, nutty fontina with hints of honey and a sweetly rich and balanced cacio occhionato made from 100 percent cow’s milk. Enticing salads, fresh seafood, soups and vegetables present an array of additional possibilities—including sautèed asparagus wrapped in tissue-thin prosciutto topped with duck egg and shavings of grana padano, a sliced raw fish crudo and a creamy cardoon timbale with black truffle butter and toasted hazelnut. The kitchen utilizes a gas-fired pizza oven with a rotating ceramic stone base that’s not 10>

The wine list is impressive, spanning Italy’s many celebrated—as well as lesser-known—regions and grapes.

< 8 only better for the environment but also produces pizzas of the same desirable quality and texture as wood-fired pizzas. The pizza dough, involving an 18-hour fermentation process, was developed on one of Rulli’s most recent trips to Italy. When baked in the special gas-fired oven, pizza crusts are surprisingly light, with a tantalizingly crispy outer layer and a soft, airy interior. Named after famous streets in San Francisco, Ristobar’s pizzas fuse gourmet ingredients to create melt-in-your-mouth combinations, like the Divisadero—tomato sauce, radicchio, balsamic and pecorino; Valencia— ricotta, goat cheese, asiago, pear and watercress; and Vesta (named after the street on which Rulli was born)—tomato sauce, ricotta, fennel sausage, speck and rucola. Pastas are housemade in Rulli’s Larkspur bakery then filled with unique and savory creations by Chef Auriana in the Chestnut kitchen. A newly introduced gnocchi is rich and flavorful and yet not overpowering—a divine culinary concoction made with gorgonzola dolce latte and Sicilian pistachio. A likewise satisfying and light risotto is made with vialone nano rice, tossed with white shrimp, prosecco and tomato. Delicate pockets of fresh ravioli are

made seasonally resplendent with spring peas, fava beans, cipolotto onion and erbette greens. All of these culinary delights are served in an expansive dining room filled with natural light and sleek, dark wood and leather furnishings. Large windows flank the entrance and side wall of the restaurant—which will soon transform into a glass-enclosed outdoor patio that can be opened on warmer days. Elaborate and lively Italian Renaissance-style paintings and trim adorn the walls and ceilings, colorfully enhancing the warm, rustic Italian palette of Ristobar’s chic interior. An elongated marble-top bar spans the length of the sizable room, creating a comfortable, convivial ambience. The bar proudly serves wines—including 3-ounce tastings, 6-ounce glasses, 10-ounce carafes, 16-ounce decanters and full bottles— from the Enomatic system, which helps sustain quality and consistency for every pour. And the wine list is impressive, spanning Italy’s many celebrated—as well as lesser-known—regions and grapes. An extensive list of local and Italian beers, along with creative wine-based cocktails, is also available. Desserts alone could make Ristobar the destination of choice for the Bay Area’s dining elite. In addition to Rulli’s famously revered panettone—here, made into a decadent bread pudding topped with vanilla gelato—the trilogia al cioccolato showcases a triage of heavenly chocolate tastes; a classic tiramisu is exalted with luscious housemade ladyfingers soaked in espresso, coffee liqueur and sambuca with creamy mascarpone (an unforgettable treat paired with a Barolo Chinato); and a viaggio nel sud—made with sheep milk ricotta cannoli, warm baba rum and Montepulciano grape jam pastry—pays tribute to Southern Italy with a recipe from Rulli’s grandfather. Refined yet familial, Ristobar simply expands upon the Emporio Rulli brand of good living, good eating (and drinking) and excellent company.

Meet Your local cheesemakers at an Ag Institute Farmers MArket It’s no coincidence that “say cheese” is the tried and true method of getting people to smile. Nothing prompts a camera-ready grin like a taste of handmade artisan, farmstead, local cheese. Given our growing community of cheesemakers, we can’t help but embrace our cheesy tendencies. What started 25 years ago with one cheesemaker from Oakdale, CA, has been perfectly aged. We’re proud to celebrate local dairy traditions by hosting a half dozen local cheesemakers. Whether you’re looking for a slice of cheddar or a dollop of crème fraîche, you’ll find it at the Ag Institute’s farmers markets. Wearing their cheesiest smiles are cheesemakers from Cowgirl Creamery, Spring Hill Jersey Cheese, Bodega Artisan Goat Cheese, and Bellwether Farms. For the full interviews visit agriculturalinstitute.org.
