Situated on a tree-lined street amid upscale galleries and design firms, Quince is never bogged down by formality. Make your way inside this elegant establishment to be greeted by a well-versed, passionate, and black-suited service team—clearly one of the best in the city. Each fixed menu option promises fine-tuned, elevated, and inspired cooking. Pasta courses are a highlight here, like enticing cocoa-flavored tagliatelle, topped with crunchy cocoa nibs, attractively spiraled over a buttery root vegetable reduction and brunoised turnip, beet, and radish. Meals may reach their height with the vibrant red beet-infused cappeletti filled with creamy smoked ricotta, dressed in a beet reduction beneath fragrant black Perigord truffle shavings. But, even a well-trimmed cutlet of Watson Farm lamb is cooked until deliciously tender and perfectly flavorsome, with a piece of loin coated in crunchy almond crumbs and rye berries, simmered in liquor and adding a splendid layer of texture and flavor. Expert desserts may balance sheets of bitter chocolate ganache with smooth Sicilian pistachio paste, served with dark chocolate foam, pistachio-vanilla bean ice cream, and candied kumquats.

      Pros

      The cauliflower gnocchis were outstanding as well as the blackcurrant/violet dessert. Large selection of Californian wines as well as some good bottles from La Romanée Conti. Cheeses are not included in the menu as they do in many French restaurants.
