San Francisco, CA 94133
SF Weekly's Description
With Quince's Michelin star securely transferred to the restaurant's palatial second home, owners Michael and Lindsay Tusk have opened Cotogna next door, a casual(ish) place offering flocks of appetizers and vegetable sides, scaled-down pastas, and a wood-fired oven, rotisserie, and grill. The box-shaped space translates warehouse into farmhouse, with exposed brick walls, striated woods, and lights that preserve everyone in liquid amber. Cotogna beautifully translates everything that is so refined about Quince into classic California simplicity. That includes Tusk's ethereal pastas, many of them coated in oven-braised meat ragus, and grilled meats bathed in wood smoke. An innovative prix-fixe wine list, pulled almost exclusively from the northern half of Italy, lets diners be guided by pairing rather than price.
Tips from foursquare
Enjoy as the aroma of spit-roasting pork fills the rustic dining room. The pastas include a raviolo filled with ricotta and an egg yolk that breaks under your knife to bleed into a brown-butter sauce.
They had us at housemade ricotta. [Eater 38 Member]
7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the $24 prix fixe is delicious. Yum!
Corkage may be $25 a bottle, but you can't beat their 3 course menu for only $24!
