A trio of new dining destinations are due to hit our fair, moth-infested city this week.
• In the heart of North Beach, Nua opened last week to mixed reviews. The Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and wine bar is home to a trendy wood-panelled interior and a decent wine list. Nua is currently only open for dinner, but a lunch menu is slated to arrive in mid-April.
• Good news for all bastilla lovers: Tajine is slated to reopen sometime early next week. The owner finally found a new space in Nob Hill, thereby resurrecting one of the better Moroccan spots in the Bay. Welcome back, Tajine.
• Rounding out the week’s openings is Piqueo’s, an intriguing Peruvian restaurant on Cortland Avenue. The menu is rife with traditional seafood dishes, from ceviche to carapulcra. Entree prices range from $15-25, so it’s not exactly cheap, but no different from other Peruvian favorites in the city.
