San Francisco restaurants are seriously blessed when it comes to access to top-notch purveyors, both in terms of quality products and the care with which those products are made or sourced. Joe and Andi Conte are the founders of one of the best sustainable fisheries, Water2Table, and have partnered with chef Nick Anichini (formerly of Atelier Crenn) for a seafood-centric restaurant in the Mission. Ancora, which means anchor in Italian, showcases the best that our local waters have to offer in the form of an ever-shifting menu, available in both prix-fixe and a la carte form. Dishes might include San Francisco anchovies served with Pan Tomate, Half Moon Bay Petrale Sole, and a whole Mt. Lassen Trout for two.
How to book: Reservations are available via OpenTable.
