Don’t Skip the Made-From-Scratch Risotto at Picco Restaurant

At Picco Restaurant, dishes are intended for sharing — not that you'll want to. According to regular diners, it's especially difficult to be generous with Picco's risotto. Made from scratch every half hour, this classic comfort food dish is elevated through the addition of artisanal cheeses, decadent truffles, and seasonal ingredients like leeks and chicory.

Elsewhere on the menu of tapas-style plates, you'll encounter oysters on the half shell, gourmet salads, wood-grilled vegetables and meats, pan-roasted fish, and a daily cheese platter. The latter is also included on the dessert menu, listed alongside the sea salt-sprinkled chocolate pot de crème, the cinnamon spiced churros, the lemongrass ice cream-topped blueberry cobbler, and other inventive sweets.

If you're just arriving for a cocktail, regulars say you'll be in good hands with the skilled bartenders, and the decor, replete with brick and redwood, encourages lingering.
