Brix offers seasonal, locally sourced and generally top-notch fare in a handsome room with exposed brick walls and an intimate copper bar. Sister business Proper Meats + Provisions on S San Francisco supplies charcuterie, free-range pork and other fundamentals of lip-smacking dishes that include cavatelli with Calabrese sausage, kale and preserved lemon. The wine list is well curated, and reservations are recommended.

There's a good selection of small dishes, pastas and salads for vegetarians, but strangely no mains. If you're not up for a full meal, pop in for a small plate and a craft cocktail.
