My F&W
quick save (...)

Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski met in a photo class in 1994, then fell in love—and into cooking together. Today they work at Rubicon in San Francisco, where Brioza (an F&W Best New Chef 2003) handles the savory dishes, Krasinski the desserts. They cook together at home, too, preparing fast, intelligent and outrageously delicious recipes for two.

In a tasting of more than 10 varieties sold at supermarkets, our top picks were Scharffen Berger 70% Cacao Bittersweet ($5 for 3 oz), with its hint of fruitiness, and Lindt's lush, velvety Swiss Bittersweet ($3 for 3.5 oz).

Rubicon, 558 Sacramento St., San Francisco; 415-434-4100.
