San Francisco: Comstock

With its classic cocktails and late-Victorian sconces, Comstock is inspired by the West Coast's turn-of-the-century saloons. Still, after researching old cookbooks, Carlo Espinas discovered, "When you look at historical American cooking, all roads lead to the South." Among his new Southern classics: red-pepper jelly spread on cheddar crackers that are a cross between Cheez-Its and Wheat Thins.
