Anchor & Hope, San Francisco

21 of 33

Originally conceived of as an East Coast fish house (albeit one set in a turn-of-the-century warehouse in industrial-chic SoMa), this go-to spot for Bay Area pescatarians is expanding its horizons under the direction of chef Vernon Morales, whose résumé includes stints at El Bulli and Daniel. Expect globally inspired plates—chorizo and clams, bacalao with piri-piri sauce, and cuttlefish-and-squid-ink risotto—plus traditional favorites like clam chowder and a Maine-style lobster roll with Old Bay kettle chips.
