San Francisco

Seasonal Italian cooking in a big, bright space is the name of the game at Credo. While the atmosphere might not feel like a traditional Italian restaurant (the owner used to be a political consultant, the walls are plastered with inspirational quotes, and all of the one-of-a-kind tables are handcrafted by a Dutch craftsman), this Financial District spot is great for lunch, dinner, or drinks. Its endless pasta & pizza options and the burrata are high on the list of must-haves.
