• Pinch-hitting in the Weekly (prior to Jonathan Kauffman’s January instatement), John Birdsall gives high praise to a number of the locally-sourced dishes at Il Cane Rosso, and stresses that this isn’t your typical Italian-meets-California fare. “What’s amazing about Il Cane Rosso is the way the food expresses the ingredient-focused style of Cal-Med’s 30-year-old traditions while making them feel absolutely contemporary.” [SF Weekly]

• Reidinger remains in mild love with the straight-ahead Cal-Italian cooking at Bacco in Noe Valley, which after sixteen years is still “supple and has been smoothly adjusted to reflect local conditions.” [SFBG]
